Opening business mileage
Setting up current business mileage
Before starting to claim using MyExpensesOnline you need to set your current business mileage as the rate paid for mileage will be calculated from this value going forward within the tax year.
To do this you first need to do is setup your vehicle, the link below will help with this.
When creating your first claim the first line needs to be your opening mileage, to set this and make sure a value is not attached please use the Mileage category called ‘Opening balance mileage’.
There is no rate attached to this category so a claim line will be created at 0 value.
Enter the number of miles and a short description, then save the claim line.
If you then click on the Existing lines on the right hand side of the screen you will see details similar to those above.
You can now return to adding a new claim line and continue to enter your other claim lines.
Any subsequent mileage lines need to use the Mileage category as this will then apply the correct mileage rate to the journey.
