If this is written into your contract and you can prove it to SARS then you can depreciate your vehicle based on the Wear and Tear calculator and apportion that amount for the business mileage over the total mileage.

Thanks - unfortunately it was not part of my contract - I did it while I was acting in a position - Got appointed now with the benefits and will then claim next year. Seems it is my loss for now.

IF you can get your employee to provide a letter, SARS may accept it and allow the deduction.
