  • RE: Mileage claim for Pet Sitter

    Thank you, I've worked out the 40%/24 month rule, I did a pie chart and no client has taken more than 18% of my work time so it would not be classed as normal commuting I believe. Can I also claim for travel to initial client meet ups at their property ? Also can I claim for travel to pick up and drop off property keys for my jobs ? There is no charge for these services, included in the price. Obviously all the above is done whilst to and from my other pet sits if possible to minimise travel.
  • Mileage claim for Pet Sitter

    Hi I'm a cat/pet sitter, I drive to and look after pets in my customer's own homes. I essentially do 2 shifts a day to feed the pets, so can I claim for the morning shift, i.e. from home to customer then back home, (or if I have more than 1 customer, it would be home to customer onto next customer etc then home) then the same again for the evening shift ? Or is only 1 shift allowed ? Would it have to be classed as my choice to go home in between the 2 shifts ? Any help appreciated please.
