New Kilometre Rates For Business Vehicles

If you use a car for your business you could be eligible for deduction, says New Zealand’s leading accounting experts Tutbury & Associates Limited

The kilometre rates to calculate deductions for business use of a motor vehicle have been updated for the 2017-18 income year.

“If you’re eligible for the deduction, for the first 14,000 kilometres your vehicle travels in a year, you can claim 76 cents per kilometre for any business-related kilometre you travelled,” says Kelly Tutbury (Pictured), Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.

It doesn’t matter whether your vehicle is electric, hybrid, petrol, or diesel this rate still applies.

If your vehicle travels more than 14,000 kilometres (including both business and personal), “the rate you can claim reduces and then can differ depending on the vehicle type,” adds Kelly

The financial specialists at Tutbury & Associates Limited will also assist you with working out your deductions for your business and calculate cost of using your motor vehicle for business.

“There are no GST implications for kilometre rates for self-employed people and employee reimbursement,” advises Kelly.

You can also claim deductions on your actual costs including depreciation loss for the business use of your motor vehicle.
