I am an independent contractor. I have used my vehicle for business use (without making a claim for re-imbursement) and have recorded this in a logbook. May I claim depreciation for my vehicle (under 4027)? Also where do I claim my business mileage travelled (code 4015 is greyed out)? And what value do put in as a claim? Is it the km multiplied by some rate? And what rate would that be?
I also have used my cell phone to make business calls and have ADSL which I use for doing work related activities. Where do I claim these amount?
Telephone calls would be shown under Other - are you able to input something in those blocks? Depreciation would be the value of your vehicle /5 * the apportionment for business use over total travel and then the other vehicle related expenses would be multiplied by the same apportionment from the logbook and either put in the Travel block or Other if you cannot put in travel.
