Saving You Money
In South Africa, the cost of petrol and diesel has been on what feels like a never-ending increase over the past year. This increase in fuel prices has been a significant financial burden for individuals and businesses who rely on vehicles for transportation.
Our devices and software track the movement of a vehicle and records the distance travelled, route taken and fuel costs. This information can then be used to generate expense claims for business-related travel as well as other reports which include: Tax Detailed Reports, Tax Summary Reports, Tax Business Trip Reports, Zone Detail Reports, Trip Lists and the most popular one: Business Travel Claims.
Saving You Time
For example, a business owner who frequently travels for work can use a GPS logbook to track their business-related mileage. This information can then be used to claim back the cost of fuel from SARS as a business expense. Similarly, an individual who uses their personal vehicle for work can also use a GPS logbook to track their business-related mileage and claim the cost of fuel as a travel allowance.
Finally, using a GPS Log Book a safe and reliable way to claim expenses. It provides a clear and detailed record of all of your expenses, which can be used as evidence if you are ever audited by SARS.
We hope this information has been helpful and we encourage you to start keeping a logbook for your expenses. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

Important Dates to Remember: In South Africa, the tax year for the South African Revenue Service (SARS) begins on 1st of March and ends on the last day of February the following year.
The tax return filing season usually opens on 1st of July and ends on the last day of November. So, taxpayers are expected to file their tax returns for the previous tax year within this period.
It’s important to note that the due date for submitting your tax returns may be different if you are an individual taxpayer, a provisional taxpayer, or a small business corporation. Additionally, the due date may be extended in certain cases, such as if you are submitting your return through a tax practitioner, or if you are eligible for a tax directive. Therefore, it’s always recommended to check with SARS or a tax professional to ensure that you are aware of the correct due date for submitting your tax returns.
