    Calculating Fuel allowance from receipts 12th Apr 18 at 11:11 AM
    For the past year I have kept my fuel receipts for calculating my mileage allowance, I now have an accountant who has advised to just keep a record of business mileage, which is great. But I still need to work out my allowance for the last year from my receipts any advice on how to go about this?
    Many thanks

    probably not a way to do it from just the receipts...assuming they would cover both business mileage and personal/commuting
    do you have a diary, calendar that shows you what journeys made on each day that you can calculate from route finders

    allowance for what?

    is this your personal car or a company car?

    do you mean you want to claim only business mileage covered? If yes then you can only do so from the info on the mileage log as you are required to record date, distance and purpose of journey to claim it as a business expense

    if you mean something else, please clarify what?
