The case for personal vs business mileage

2017-04-11

Many fleets across Europe consist of company cars, which double up as private vehicles for employees after hours. Or, employees use their own cars for work purposes and claim back for business miles travelled. Which is all fine and well, except where tax regulations are concerned. 

These regulations are quite complicated. In a nutshell, businesses need to prove to their local tax authorities that they are applying due diligence when recording mileage. More specifically, they need to show that they are accurately able to distinguish between business and personal miles driven. Normally, this would be an administrative nightmare!

MiX DriveMate makes light work of this daunting task by putting drivers in control of managing their mileage. The unobtrusive device is mounted to a vehicle’s dashboard and is primarily used to provide real-time feedback to drivers about their driving behaviour.

Drivers can simply switch from business to personal mode at the touch of a button, which helps categorise mileage for tax and expense claim purposes. MiX’s solution then keeps accurate records of the mileage that each driver has undertaken in each mode. Of course, driver ID is an important part of the process.

 

Being able to switch modes also means that MiX DriveMate complies with privacy legislation in Europe, where drivers may only be tracked or monitored when driving for work purposes.
