The vehicle logbook involves recording every trip in your vehicle (both private and business) for a 12-week period. Your logbook is then used to calculate the business use percentage of your vehicle. Your business use percentage is then used to work out the deductible amount of your vehicle costs.

What the ATO expects from you2022-09-08T15:36:25+10:00

The ATO requires you to keep a logbook for 12-weeks with regular business use. You must record:

  • The date and the odometer reading at the start of the 12-weeks.
  • Your odometer reading at the start – and end – of business trips.
  • Your odometer reading at the start and end of all personal trips.
  • Your odometer reading at the end of the 12 weeks.

To ensure that your logbook remains valid, you must also:

  • Record the odometer reading at the start and the end of each financial year.
  • Update your logbook every five years (or earlier if your business use changes).
