Tripcatcher makes it easy to claim mileage expenses

Irrespective of where you are Tripcatcher allows you to complete your mileage expenses using either the web app or on the phone app. The interface is simple to use and provides a lot of time saving features including calculating the amount of vat your business can recover on the fuel portion of the mileage rate.  Tripcatcher also provides google maps for calculating the distance travelled, favourite and recurring trips.

The app uses HMRC’s recommended mileage rates for trips made with your own vehicle whether it be a car, van motorbike or bicycle. It will laso allow you to claim the additional rates for passengers working for the same employer. This ensures that you are maximising your mileage claims. The rates are also automatically adjusted once the 10,000 business miles threshold is exceeded.

The distance calculator ensures that your mileage claims are accurate.

When you submit your expenses to your accounting software (Tripcatcher interfaces with Kashflow and receipt bank) you have a permanent record of your expenses within your accounts making the data easily accessible should you be inspected.
