Helps Contractors Track Their Business Miles

Drivers can save money on their tax return, thanks to free online mileage log.
Aug. 5, 2010 - PRLog -- Contractors can claim up to 40p for every business mile travelled. Unlike employees or the self-employed, contractors can even claim for their commute to work, which often amounts to thousands of miles every year. To claim this mileage back from the tax man, it is necessary to keep a clear record of all business miles.
Drivers who want to claim back their mileage expenses can do so with Tripcatcher. Gone are the days of mental arithmetic and messing about with spreadsheets: Tripcatcher calculates distances, creates expense reports and produces end-of-year mileage tax claims.
Ken Whipday, freelance contractor and founder of Tripcatcher, comments,
“If you don’t track your mileage expenses so that you can claim them back, it’s a lot of money lost.  Logging your miles can be time consuming, so I created Tripcatcher to make the whole process quicker and simpler.” uses HMRC mileage rates to calculate tax claims, and keeps to government guidelines, logging the date, distance and reason for every trip.
