If you have a travel remibursement recorded under code 3702 by your employee do you record that as a travel allowance?

No you do not, it is a travel reimbursement and recorded as such on your IRP5.

Do I then need to pay tax on the full amount or only on the difference between the SARS rate and the rate I received.

I received R4.10 per km and SARS is R3.24.

I have a log book. Will this help?

I travelled 10080 km for the tax year. at a rate of R4.10.

Unfortunately you will have to pay tax on the whole amount as they paid you more than the SARS rate and was greater than 8000km.
