Vehicle and Travel Expenses

You can claim vehicle and other travel expenses

  • Directly related with your work,
  • Can’t claim for normal trips between home and work – this is considered private travel

To claim that expenses record should be maintained. While trips between home and work are generally considered private travel, you can claim deductions in some circumstances, as well as for some travel between two workplaces.

If your travel was partly private and partly for work, you can only claim for the part related to your work.

Travel between home and work and between workplace

  • Travel between home and work are generally considered private travel.
  • You can claim deductions some travel between workplaces in some circumstances.
  • If your travel was partly private and partly for work, you can only claim for the part related to your work Car expenses
  • If you are claiming a deduction for using your own car (including a car you lease or hire), it is treated as a car expense.
  • If you use someone else’s car for work purposes, you may be able to claim the direct costs (such as fuel) as a travel expense.
  • If the travel was partly private, you can claim only the work-related part.

What you can’t claim

You can’t claim the cost of driving your car between work and home just because:

  • you do minor work-related tasks – for example, picking up the mail on the way to work or home
  • you have to drive between your home and your workplace more than once a day
  • you are on call – for example, you are on stand-by duty and your employer contacts you at home to come into work
  • there is no public transport near where you work
  • you work outside normal business hours – for example, shift work or overtime
  • your home was a place where you ran your own business and you travelled directly to a place of work where you worked for somebody else
  • you do some work at home.
