21.4 Information to be recorded in logbook
This section is relevant only to the first method described in
End of attention
We don't produce an official logbook. You are entitled to keep
records of your own design, or to purchase one of the many
commercial products available. However, the following details must
be entered in the logbook for each business
- the date(s) on which the journey began and ended
- the odometer readings at the start and end of each journey
- the kilometres travelled
- the purpose of the journey.
The logbook records must be in English and entries must be made
at the end of the trip or as soon as reasonably practicable
Where two or more business trips are undertaken consecutively on
any day, only one entry for the series needs to be recorded in the
logbook. For example, an entry for a salesman who called on
10 customers while working in the Bathurst-Orange area of New
South Wales could record the odometer readings at the start and end
of the consecutive journeys and describe the purpose of the travel
as '10 customer calls, Bathurst-Orange area'.
The period during which the logbook was kept must be specified
in the logbook at the end of the logbook period.
