Uber Transactions not being allowable expnse

Hi Everyone,

 

I have just completed my return for 17-18 and quickbooks SE doesn't seem to allow my uber rides from when I've been away with work as an allowable  expenses? 

I was under the impression that cab rides I took for work were allowed as a travel expense?

I haven't included them in my return until I could check but what are poeples thoughts? It's a good 280 quid worth of travel expenses I'm missing out on! 

 

Thanks in advance everyone.

Hello there, Pearson87.

 

Let's make sure to categorize the Uber rides under Travel expenses, not Car and van expenses. This way, the transaction will work as an allowable expenses.

Hi Kristine,

 

thanks for the quick reply!

I have double checked and they are classified as Travel. I will check more carefully.

 

Many thanks

Thanks for making sure that they're categorized correctly. They should be working as allowable expenses once it's under Travel expenses.
