Today I’m turning over the blog to my Senior Taxation Adviser Simon Ellis, who has some interesting thoughts and questions about packaging iPads.  Take it away Simon . . . .

As many readers already know, a salary packaging opportunity exists for portable electronic devices where they are intended “primarily” for use in undertaking employment duties.

To date this opportunity has generally been used to package the dynamic duo of work-related equipment, the mobile phone and the laptop, but with the impending Australian release of the iPad are we about to see a third product enter the packaging arena?  Are tablet computers going to be the next big thing in portable business tools?

At the moment, with iPads as the market leader (and Apple’s monopoly on ‘cool’), these computers seem to be aimed more at media consumption than any serious business application, but it seems likely that the future of these computers will see them used for a wide range of business applications.

So what do you think?  Are there any aspects of your current job that you think would benefit from access to a tablet computer as opposed to, say, a traditional laptop?  Do you think you could justify a ‘primary’ work purpose for this new breed of portable electronics if they were offered as a packaging option?
