Hi. As a ‘sole trader’ can you claim travel to and from work E.g. from home to an office or do you only claim travel made in between working hours E.g. office to site and back, like an ‘individual’?

Hi @saran7,

 

Welcome to our Community.

 

Claiming travel expenses are dependent on your specific circumstances. I am not sure if you travel to the same office every morning and then travel elsewhere for work during the day.

 

There is a comprehensive list on our website detailing what you can and can’t claim for traveling. If this does not answer your questions you can phone us on 13 28 61 between 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday to speak with a customer service representative.

 

Thank you for your question, SueO

I got to different offices/pharmacies to perform work as a contractor - I am a pharmacist that is contracted to perform a service at a certain site, so I travel to and from those locations. Is that trip counted?
