Hello @stng771

 

A business can claim motor vehicle expenses, if the vehicle is owned, leased or under a hire-purchase agreement, therefore Trust B would be able to claim the expenses, if the vehicle is being leased from Trust A.

 

As a trust, you would need to use the 'actual costs method' to calculate your deduction. There are no issues with claiming  motor vehicle expenses, provided you keep the right records.
