I know, I know – I nag about mileage, but it can be a completely bulletproof way of incurring TAX FREE INCOME. You have car expenses, so let the business pay for them! And you pay for business expenses personally, get that back.
The automobile allowance rates for 2017 are:
- 54¢ per kilometre for the first 5,000 kilometres driven; and
- 48¢ per kilometre driven after that.
Track! Your! Mileage! And biz expenses paid personally.
You can Hubdoc your expenses, or use another app (i know, I know – another app – just saying).
I recommend Everlance. Here is a list of solved pain points for my clients & I for mileage and biz expenses paid personally. I have suggested the premium version as the way to go for my clients. See bottom notes on REPORTS!

REPORTS – I’m discussing premium

Whichever you chose, just get on with it.
