My employer doesn't reimburse me for traveling in between the office and our sites. I don't have a company car but I drive about 92KM per day between the office and on of our sites. Would it be possible to claim KMs from SARS for the use of my private car? And the company doesn't provide a cellphone allowance but I'm required to use my phone a lot at work. I receive no allowance and I'm not a commission earner. Can I claim for the contract I was forced to take?

Unfortunately, SARS wont allow you to claim a deduction if you are not earning commission or receiving any type of allowance.
It is therefore easier to request reimbersement from your employer for these expenses.
