Cost of driving for self-employed workers
For those who drive as part of their jobs, such as self employed taxi drivers, Uber drivers and delivery drivers, then the increasing cost of buying and running a car is even more significant.
When your car is being used for long hours each day, then it’s more likely to need repairs and ultimately will need to be replaced more frequently and you’ll obviously spend more money on fuel too.
However, if you’re self-employed, you can still claim back expenses. For example, you can claim back costs such as your car insurance, repairs and servicing, fuel, parking, and more.
However you cannot claim back any expenses on driving that is not related to the business, any time spent driving from home to work, or any fines that you pick up while working.
Visit GOV.UK for more information on claiming back vehicle expenses when you’re self-employed.
