One of the questions in the beginning of the Tax Return, will ask if you want to claim against a Travel Allowance - you need to answer it "yes".

In the Travel expenditure section of your Tax Return, you then need to add in all the relevant details e.g. purchase price of car, purchase date, business kms etc Your deduction/claim will be automatically calculated when you complete these details.

Please note you may only claim Travel Expenses if you received a Travel Allowance (Source code 3701 and/or 3702) and you kept a vehicle logbook where you recorded all your business km's travelled. Travel from home to your place of work is considered to be personal expenditure and therefore cannot be included in the claim.
