How does GPS Log Book work?
GPS Log Book takes the hassle out of keeping an accurate, detailed and SARS-compliant logbook by allowing you to effortlessly manage your trips.
Select Your Device
Choose between our Classic and Live devices to start capturing key tax claim information automatically, such as dates, times, and kilometres traveled on your business trips.
Conveniently and quickly register your new tracking device online. If you are using the GPS Classic device, you will also need to install our Sync Application, which is used to sync your trip data from the device to the GPS Log Book web interface. The LIVE device uploads data automatically.
Plug it in
Stress-free installation, no wires required! Our Classic device plugs into your vehicle using the Cigarette lighter socket. The Live device plugs into your vehicle’s OBDII port, which is located right under your dashboard.
Generate travel reports in seconds including SARS Compliant Tax Log Books, Tax Business Trips Report, Tax Detailed and Summary Reports, Business Travel Claim Report, Vehicle Trip List, and Zone Detail Reports.
Submit your fully compliant travel reports to SARS to claim your deduction. All travel data is securely stored in the cloud for easy access.
Who is GPS Log Book for?
Since 2011, any person who receives a travel allowance is required to present a logbook to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) before any travel tax claim can be processed.
Whether you’re self-employed, a small business owner or corporate employee, tracking your travel and fuel expenses is important for business and tax purposes.
If you receive a travel allowance from an employer or principal, you can claim a deduction on the assessment of your annual income tax return for the use of a private motor vehicle for business purposes.
Ditch the pen and paper log books and start effortlessly monitoring all of the vehicles in your fleet with trip lists, tax business trip reports, tax summary reports, and much more.

“Thanks a mil. Highly impressed with the service from your side as well as unit operation. 100% recommendable.”
“All our reps used to do manual logbooks. After implementing these units our expenses have gone down by 40% on our fuel. These units have already paid for themselves. Thanks for the great product. I was so impressed I bought one for myself and will be claiming back in the region of about R 36 000 from SARS.”
Your online database is easy to navigate and quick to use. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a digital logbook. And most importantly it’s priced right too. There is another product on the market that doesn’t offer half as much convenience and literally costs double the price. In addition to all these benefits is the fact that I can simply plug the device directly into my lighter socket and forget it’s even there!
