Why use Tripcatcher with Xero?

HMRC compliant claims

Expense claims are calculated using HMRC recommended Mileage Allowance Payments (MAPs), e.g. 45 pence per mile (ppm) for cars and vans. Once the 10,000 mile threshold is reached, Tripcatcher automatically changes the rate to 25ppm - as recommended by HMRC. You can also claim for business mileage by motorbike and bicycle in Tripcatcher too.

Automatic distance calculation

If you don't know the miles travelled, then Tripcatcher will calculate the distance for you. Just type and select the Start and End addresses (street address, town or postcode), for the business journey, and Tripcatcher uses Google Maps to calculate the distance.

Save your favourite trips

Save a business trip to "favourites". When you next claim for the same trip, simply select the trip from your list of favourites and click the save button. This is a great time saver, 2 clicks and your business journey is saved. This is extreemly useful if using the Tripcatcher phone app.

Easy to use Xero integration

Tripcatcher enables you to publish your mileage expenses, in real time, to Xero. The Xero integration is very easy to set up. And Tripcatcher integrates with the Xero Purchases (Bills) and to Classic Expenses. Once connected your business mileage can be publish to Xero from the Tripcatcher Expense Claim page.

Claim VAT on mileage expenses

If you're VAT registered (not flat rate) you can claim the VAT on the fuel element of your mileage claim. Tripcatcher does this automatically for you, saving your company money. Tripcatcher keeps the rates (Advisory Fuel Rates) up to date, ensuring you're HMRC compliant.

Mobile app

Use Tripcatcher on the go with the phone app (iOS and Android). The app is easy to use with time saving feature such as GPS, favourites, default settings for Home and Office.
