Yes I did keep a logbook for all my tax years. I am just not sure that because it is a reimbursive allowance (and not a normal fixed travel allowance) if this has any bearing on the deduction you can claim?

What source code appears on your IRP5 3702 or 3703?

3702 appears on my IRP 5 - a reimbursive travel allowance.

You would still complete the tax return and the travel allowance section of the tax return using your logbook. SARS will then deduct the business portion against the allowance received.

You can use either method, please make use of our Travel Allowance calculator to determine the best method to use.
