My question has to do with Calculate Wear and Tear / Depreciation using Interpretation Note 47.

Can one claim depreciation on a personal car that one uses to get to work and back?

No you cannot depreciate an asset for travelling from home to work as this is a "personal" use and not seen to be in the context of work as work begins when you get to the office.
