Tax Relief when using your own vehicle for work
If you use your own vehicle (or vehicles) for work, you may be able to claim tax relief on the approved mileage rate.
To work out how much you can claim for each tax year you’ll need to:
- Keep records of the dates and mileage of your work journeys
- Add up the mileage for each vehicle type you’ve used for work
- Take away any amount your employer pays you towards your costs, (sometimes called a ‘mileage allowance’)
