Got a question you want answered about tax?

Visit our helpdesk →
I get R36000 travel allowance per year. My business mileage is just over 40000 kms.
When I do the calculation on efiling my return is the same when I put down 40000 business kms as it is when I put down 20000 business kms.
Is this correct?
Have I hit my 'threshold' ?

Thanks!

Yes, there is a threshold of 18000 business km for tax purposes and SARS will not allow more than that unfortunately.

Hi

Does this apply even if I have a logbook?


Thanks!

Yes, you can only claim against a travel allowance if you keep a logbook. SARS won't let you claim otherwise.
