New Vehicle Mileage Rates You Should Know


Inland Revenue has advised the new mileage rate for motor vehicles is 77 cents per kilometre. This rate applies to self employed taxpayers with up to a

maximum of 5,000 kilometres of work-related travel each year. This applies to all motor vehicles (except motor cycles) irrespective of their engine sizes or whether powered by petrol or diesel and applies from the 2011-2012 income year onwards.  

The rate may be used by employers reimbursing employees for the business use of an employee's motor vehicle. This entitlement extends to shareholder- employees as well.  However, there are other options may be used to establish a fair and reasonable rate for claims or reimbursements (for example, AA rates). If you would like to discuss how these measures may affect you, please contact us.

Matthew was extremely well prepared and delivered his 4 hour presentation like a natural. It was very informative and I believe the value of the information well exceeded the investment in the event. (That doesn't mean putting the price up for the next one though! :) - Johnny
