Are you employed and using your own vehicle for work?
Did you know that HMRC allows you to claim tax relief on mileage travelled whilst on business duties? This could be travel whilst visiting clients, travelling to and from different offices, making collections or dropping off goods, or travelling to temporary working sites. The mileage allowance available is 0.45p per mile, so if you’re not being reimbursed anything by your employer, or you are reimbursed less than 0.45p per business mile then great news, you’re entitled to make a claim.

Complete our mileage claim calculator to see how much you could be owed.
Making sure that you can claim your mileage
Not all travel for work is claimable as a mileage expense. For example, your daily commute cannot be reimbursed. The first step of our process is to advise on exactly what mileage you can actually claim for.
Start to establish your earnings and tax
Once we have confirmed that you have a claim, we start to get an understanding of your income and the amount of tax that you have paid. This may be in the form of HMRC documents, invoices, or even remittances. Once we have this, we can start to work on your mileage refund.
Find out what allowances you are entitled to
Before we submit your business mileage claim we will can start to discuss what other tax reliefs that you may be entitled to. By this we don’t just mean your mileage, you may also be able to claim for your uniform, home working etc.
Process your claim and have your refund paid out
We submit all mileage claims on a personal tax return. This not only gives us more control over your claim, but it is an awful lot faster than submitting your claim on a P87.
For years we have been helping our clients get the tax reliefs that they are owed. Tens of thousands of people have overpaid tax and we are passionate about getting this tax back.
We aren’t rated excellent on review platforms for nothing ;).
When you think of accountants people often think about elbow patch wearing stuffy individuals. At Shoebox, we are all about personality and getting to know our clients.
We deliver jargon free advice and take the time to educate our clients. We want to help build up your knowledge as it helps keep us on our toes.
We pride ourselves on working efficiently and keep you informed at every step of the way. We even pay out refunds on the same day that they are processed by HMRC.
Digital mileage logging…
One of the key things that people don’t realise about making a mileage claim is that HMRC do not accept estimated or rounded mileage claims. From time to time HMRC will ask for evidence to support mileage claims and when they do we need to provide them with a full mileage log. One of the easiest ways to do this is to keep a digital record of the journeys that you travel.
Shoebox have teamed up with FreeAgent to help you do just that.
