Travel Allowance: SARS says that travel between home and place of work is considered private and may not be claimed. What constitutes my "place of work"? I am a pastor. I do not have my own office at the church building where I am employed, but I often travel to the church during the week to see people or attend meetings. Am I allowed to claim those trips to the church building as work km's?

SARS would most likely consider the Church your place of work as if it were not for the Church you would not have employment, you are the Pastor of the Church and therefore most likely would not be able to claim this travel.
