I am an independent contractor code 3616. I use my vehicle for for business purposes and have an RA.

1) Must I have an RA to claim the max 15% RA deduction or can I claim irrespective having one or not ?
2) My vehicle is paid up, can I still claim the monthly ISA installment I used to pay ?
3) What are the entertainment expenses I can claim ?

The can only claim RA deductions if you contribute to a RA. You would be able to claim wear and tear on the vehicle, but not installments as you are not paying anything. You are only allowed to claim entertainment expenses for legitimate entertainment if business clients or business entertainment.
