If you use your home for your self-employment work, you may be able to claim a deduction. Just like mileage deductions, QuickBooks Self-Employed uses the simplified expense method to calculate the deduction for you.
We use your location to track your trips automatically using the simplified expense method. The simplified expense method means a flat rate is applied to the miles you drive.
For cars and goods vehicles, the flat rate changes from 45p to 25p after 10,000 miles. But you won’t need to worry about that, because when you pass that threshold, QuickBooks automatically updates and starts tracking at the new rate. (Although, if you’re a motorcyclist, the flat rate is always 24p, regardless of your mileage).
