How often do you use your car for work purposes?

Hi, I use the vehicle daily, and do about 2000 kilometers a month.

Thanks

You would be able to claim depreciation on your vehicle, but would need to prove to SARS the basis for apportioning expenses between business and private use by keeping a vehicle logbook or demonstrating some similar method.
