Accounting Tips: Use a Free Mileage Tracker App

0 min read

If you use your vehicle for your business, the Canada Revenue Agency allows you to claim a deduction for expenses or a certain amount per kilometre driven. The agency requires you to support your claim with records and receipts, and multiple apps can help. These three apps offer free trial periods or free basic features, but they levy a fee for advanced features.

Designed for fleets as well as individuals, TripLog automatically tracks mileage based on GPS coordinates, and allows you to upload and attach receipts for gasoline, parking, or other costs related to each journey. If you travel a lot for business, check out Xpenditure; it tracks mileage and other travel costs such as meals, accommodations, or public transit expenses. Timesheet Mobile GPS tracks employee mileage as well as billable hours and expenses.
