Automatic mileage tracking
You donât have to enter your mileage manually (although you can, if you really like typing). We use your location to track your trips automatically. Hereâs how it works:
1. Turn it on.
2. Take a trip.
We automatically detect your starting and stopping locations when youâre drivingâfor all of your trips, both business and personal. This could be helpful in case of an audit, in which the ATO might want to see a complete log of all the kilometres you drove in a given year.
3. Identify your allowable expense.
How to turn off mileage auto-tracking
You can turn off the auto-tracking feature by toggling off the Automatic Mileage Tracking option in the Mileage tab in the mobile app.
