Good evening, @gabrielnunez16. You've come to the right place.

 

I'm here to provide information on how you can record your miles in QuickBooks Self-Employed. 

 

When you’ve reached your destination, review your trip and mark it as business or personal.

  1. In your QuickBooks Self-Employed app, tap Mileage on the menu.
  2. Just like your transactions, swipe to categorize your transactions.
  3. To categorize a trip as personal, swipe right.
  4. To categorize a trip as a business, swipe left.
  5. For business trips, add a business purpose. You can also tag a vehicle, but this is optional.
  6. Hit Save.

QuickBooks moves your reviewed trips to the Reviewed tab. If you need to edit a trip, here's how:

  1. Tap Mileage on the menu and then select the Reviewed tab.
  2. Find and open the trip.
  3. Press Edit.
  4. Make your changes and then select Save.
  5. To delete a trip, open it to edit it. Then press the Trash can icon (Android) or Delete Trip (iPhone).

For more information, here's a couple of articles that you may find useful:

So would this apply if we go on vacation in a rental car? Would i still mark as personal or would that make it seem like I'm using my business vehicle for personal use?

Good day, gabrielnunez16.

 

For me, I would categorize this as personal since its purpose is for vacation and not for business-related.

 

I'd still recommend reaching out to your accountant to verify what category is appropriate for this. That way, we're making sure that we've tracked and kept records clear between personal and business finances.
