  • Work-related car expenses calculator

    The Work-related car expenses calculator helps you calculate the amount you can claim as a tax deduction for work-related car expenses for eligible vehicles. Eligible vehicles include cars, station wagons and sport utility vehicles.

    You can claim work-related expenses you incurred as an employee for a car you:

    • owned (even if it is not registered in your name)
    • leased (even if it is not registered in your name)
    • hired under a hire-purchase agreement.

    You can't use this calculator to calculate any expenses relating to motorcycles and vehicles with a carrying capacity of one tonne or more, or nine or more passengers, such as a utility truck and panel van. For information regarding deductions for these vehicles, see D2 Work related travel expenses 2019.

    Disclaimer: All outcomes provided by this calculator are based on the information you provide at the time of calculation. You should use the outcomes as an estimate and for guidance purposes only.

    You need to self-assess your eligibility and entitlement to a deduction for work-related car expenses before using the calculator.

    Use the information on our website on car expenses to help you self-assess your eligibility and entitlement.
