I am a commission earner without a travel allowance. I use my private vehicle for work to go and see clients etc. Will I be able to claim travel expenses (like fuel) and depreciation on the vehicle?

Your travel costs for work purposes can be deducted - the best way of doing this is to deduct a per km amount based on the SARS official rate. This includes wear and tear and petrol and other traveling costs. The official rate for 2015/2016 is R3.18 per km. Remember it must only be for business traveling expenses.
