Disabling mileage tracker

Hi. Ive not set up the mileage tracker yet as im still paying for my van monthly. I assumed this would work out more with all other van related expenses than the mileage allowance. 


When i look at the overview it states that £0 is allowable in my van expenses, yet i havent set up mileage tracker, so how do i get this to allow my costs?


Disabling mileage tracker

Hello there, @davidmann,


When recording entries under Car/Van Expenses it automatically tag it as disallowable. To post it as tax allowable, use the Travel Expenses category, then Car/Van Expenses as the sub-category.


Additionally, to disable the Auto-tracking feature, please follow these steps: 

  1. Sign in to the QBSE mobile app.
  2. Click on the Mileage tab (iOS) or Menu icon and choose Mileage (Android).
  3. Move the Auto-tracking slider to the right to turn off the feature.
