I'm getting a car allowance and as part of my package because my work requires me to travel with my car quite a lot. In the case when I travel to the clients I put a claim which is paid per kilometer. The company used to reimburse us for toll gates provided we furnish them with toll slips but now we they passed a policy that they are no longer going to pay toll fees as they have hiked the rate they are paying us per kilometer to an extent that it should paying the running cost of the car plus fuel. My question can I deduct the costs of these toll gates in my tax return since I incurred them in a business trip.

Yes, if you receive a travel allowance and incur toll fees, you can claim these for all business travel.
