Hello Jemortimer-hotma, are you using our self employed account for your sole trade or you using one of our online accounts (simple start, essentials, plus or advanced)?

Hello Jemortimer-hotma, thanks for coming back to us here, so if it is a self-employed account you can post it to the travel expense category it will show on the SA report as allowable that way. If it is one of the online accounts you have with us then you will need to create an expense account in the chart of accounts section for this so you can then select it. transactions>chart of account>new>account type- expense/ detail type- auto/ name what ever you like for example fuel/ save and close
