Recording of mileage in QB

Hi, I’m preparing a new clients VAT return and am struggling to work out how to record her mileage for her vehicle in Quickbooks, so that the VAT can be reclaimed for fuel.

I need to post her fuel receipts which I gather without the VAT as can only claim the mileage used - does anyone know the process of how I do this please?!

Hi Howe2,

 

Thank you for getting back in touch.

 

It sounds like you are using Fuel Scale as our customers would normally record mileage via expenses rather than journal entries. At the moment we do not support fuel scale but you can have at look at this article for more information.

 

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with. Smiley Happy

Hi Howe2,

 

Welcome to the Community.

 

Can I please just confirm are you referring too Fuel Scale?

Hi EdwardR

 

I’m not entirely sure if it has been worked out through the fuel scale way, as the previous accountant has only advised me that she added the mileage to a journal and didn’t put the fuel receipts through the books? I have introduced Quickbooks to my client as she will need it for Making Tax Digital, so I’m trying to work out how to put her fuel consumption for work purposes through. 

 

Thanks

Thanks for joining this thread, @dariajs.

 

I’d be delighted to share some information with you on how mileage expenses are being recorded in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

 

Car related expenses such as fuel, toll and parking fees can be categorized under Car, van and travel expenses.  Just a heads-up though, once you generate reports for this type of transactions it will be listed under disallowable. Since QuickBooks Self-Employed based the calculation on your mileage deduction not on the actual expenses.

 

For you to be guided properly on the best route to take in categorizing your income and expenses, I’d recommend consulting with your accountant.

 

Let me know how it works on your end. I’m always here to help you in tracking your car expenses and mileage QuickBooks.
