Are you claiming motor vehicle expenses for the 2012 tax year?
To enable a claim for motor vehicle expenses by either the "log book" or "one third" methods, odometer readings need to be recorded as at 30 June 2012.
This only applies to vehicles which are less than 1 tonne carrying capacity and owned by self-employed persons or by employees in their own right. This does not apply to motor vehicles supplied by an employer (ie a company, trust, etc).
The recording of the odometer reading is in a specific format and to assist with completion, following is a proforma format for your use. Can we suggest that you record the relevant odometer readings for each vehicle and then forward it with your other financial records when we are preparing your financial accounts and returns.
