Claiming the right mileage

If you don't know the exact distance you travelled on your business journey, Tripcatcher will help you out. You can enter post codes, street names, or towns, and Tripcatcher will use Google Maps to calculate the distance travelled. Tripcatcher will also provide a map of the route.

Reduce your VAT bill

You can reduce your VAT bill by claiming back the VAT on the fuel element of your mileage claim. Tripcatcher automatically selects the correct VAT rate depending on the type of engine in your car. If you claim back VAT, the expense claim, including the VAT element, is submitted to Receipt Bank. You can save £100s by re-claiming the VAT on your mileage expenses. Examples of VAT saving are shown below:

VAT Savings When Travelling 12,000 Miles a Year (as at 1/12/18)
Fuel Engine Size VAT Savings
Diesel 1601cc to 2000cc £240
Diesel over 2000cc £280
Petrol 1401cc to 2000cc £300
Petrol over 2000cc £440
