Moving expenses

I moved to BC this year, so that I can live/work here. I was in the process of being hired, but was not hired until after I moved here, do I still qualify for the moving expense credit? All I was looking to claim was the cost of movers, is the receipt enough information, or will I require more for proof?

Moving expenses

Yes, you can still qualify to claim moving expenses, since you were hired within a "reasonable time". The receipt is enough, You can also claim gas/food by using the simplified method that requires no receipts. Instead a set rate per km is given and set meal rate.
