Motor Expenses

A self-employed person can set off the motor expenses in respect of the use of a private car for business purposes.


No tax liability is incurred where there is reimbursement by the employer of vouched expenses incurred for the purposes of the trade.

If a round sum expense allowance is given to an employee, it is regarded as income and taxed accordingly under PAYE. Subsequently, a claim for refund of income tax can be made based on allowable business expenditure incurred.

An employee may claim a mileage allowance, where they use their own private cars for business purposes and pay all expenses including petrol/diesel, insurance and other overheads. Provided the reimbursement is in accordance with Revenue guidelines at rates not in excess of Civil Service Mileage Rates, no prior agreement with the Inspector of Taxes is required.
