Save even more money to increase your profits by tracking your business Mileage Expenses. Its simple in Pocket PA.
Firstly set up your business mileage cost under the account settings.
My Profile > Customisation > Payments Settings
Here you’ve got your mileage setting information. You need to select what your mileage allowance is per mile.
In the UK there are two levels for mileage tracking - for the first 10,000 miles you can claim a higher cost, and then after you’ve done 10,000 miles there’s a lower amount that is claimable per mile.
NOTE: Please check this cost in your country and amend it accordingly.
To record your Mileage Expense there are 3 ways:
VIA THE TOP RIGHT + BUTTON
Tap the Plus button in the right top and choose Expense
2. VIA THE EXPENSES PAGE
On the Expenses Page you can add Business mileage expenses with the Plus button
For both 1 & 2 above, you then need to choose the expense type as Mileage Tracking Expense.
3. VIA THE DIRECTIONS BUTTON
You can Track your mileage also via the Directions Button from any appointment you are on - and then choosing YES in the pop up that asks if you want to track your business mileage.
Set your current location by choosing an address from the drop-down menu or you can type it in manually by clicking the button Type In (you can do this for both of the From and To fields).
PROTIP: In the mobile version your Current address will automatically be pre-populated for you as your FROM address
You can change the amount per mile in the Settings. (see above)
Click the green Track Mileage button for it will automatically work out what the distance is between the two addresses and calculate the expense amount.
Click Save in the top right corner when you are finished and the mileage claim will be saved to your business expenses.
