 Rory says: 19 November 2015 at 9:05 I have calculated that I traveled 1961km and that my car is worth less than R80000. Therefore my deduction should be 25946 92.3*1964/100 27.6*1964/100 = 28297.96Is this correct? Would SARS want any other proof besides my log book?
 TaxTim says: 19 November 2015 at 12:39 You can make use of our Travel Allowance calculator to get the workings. However it would be:25946/1961 = 92.3c 27.6c = Then you take that answer and multiply it by the percentage of business travel over total travel and that would be your claim.

We'll tell you when you need to file, along with tax tips and updates.
