I am employed as a service engineer, receive a travel allowance and own my own vehicle. Our company is embarking on a work from home initiative where we will no longer have to come to the company offices every day before going out to see clients and repair equipment.

In this scenario you would deduct the distance from your home to the office from the total distance driven to the client.
