This calculator provides guidance and information about the deductions you are entitled to for trips between your home and workplace.

You must specify where you live and work. The calculation will be based on this information. All of your tax circumstances has not been assessed, so you will not receive a binding reply from us, only an indication of what the travel deduction means for your tax. The information you provide will not be stored.

The final assessment of what you are entitled to for travel deductions will be carried out when your tax return is processed. You will receive a reply as to whether or not we have approved the deduction for travel in your tax settlement.

If you believe you are entitled to a travel deduction, you must indicate this in your tax return. Changes to tax returns may be made electronically or on paper.

The calculator uses maps from Google. You can read more about the use of cookies and analysis tools for web statistics here.
