I am currently at the travel allowance part of my tax return. This question arises. Do you receive a travel allowance from your employer? Click Yes if source codes 3701 or 3702 appear on your IRP5, AND if you kept a vehicle logbook. My answer is no as those source codes do not appear on my IRP5. However I am a full commission earner and keep a logbook. Where will I input those figures/amounts?

Then you will include this amount under the Tax Deduction section for travel and or depreciation.

You would then take all the expenses related to the car such as fuel, maintenance, license, insurance etc and multiply that by 68% as this is the apportionment for business travel. Include that under the travel deduction section. The car itself would be depreciated over 5 years and then apportioned for the 68%.
