Do you have a 3606 on your IRP5?

Yes I do. Problem is I have gotten the increase in October 2013 and started using my own Vehicle and cellphone. I have kept a logbook with my millage since October 2013. I have 2 vehicles and I use one (the cheapie) for work and the other (expensive car) for private use. Is it possible to claim? My commision is sort of a set amount thats about 20% of my income.

You can claim travel against your commission. You would need to prove to SARS that the travel you and claim is based solely on the work you do and your business expenses, so you would need to use your logbook to apportion the travel costs in earning that commission.
