Car | Include Car Expenses

Which car costs can I enter and how do I do that properly?

Do you want to buy a car and use it for both business and private purposes? Consider in advance whether you can buy the car for business or privately. After all, it is a decision that you make for a number of years and has many consequences (read below: from private to business). Read this FAQ, which explains the different (dis)advantages.

Business car

If you register a car in the name of your company, you may deduct all costs. For example, your costs for fuel, parking, insurance, and maintenance are business. Keep in mind that you must have a receipt for (almost) everything. So a receipt, an invoice or receipt. This applies in any case to all costs that include VAT such as petrol, repairs, parking in parking garages, etc. In the case of insurance you often do not receive a receipt. Read here what to do.

Privat car: entering expenses in The Bookie Webapp

If you have purchased a car privately, but you drive for business purposes, you can still include costs in your expenses. You can deduct € 0.19 per kilometer. You enter these costs in The Bookie Webapp on the basis of your kilometer registration. Here you keep track of how many kilometers you drive for business. 

Plus: The Bookie enters your expenses

Send us the total of your kilometers driven at the end of the year. We process this properly in your administration. We ask for this number of kilometers with the declaration of quarter 4 in January.

Basic: Enter costs yourself

You enter these costs in The Bookie Webapp by creating an Expense. For example, you can write down Kilometers or Kilometer allowance when you contact us. You then enter the number of kilometers and € 0.19 per kilometer and select 'Kilometer allowance' as the category (cost item). You set the VAT to 0%.

This 'mileage allowance' is intended to compensate you for all business car costs you incur for your car. In other words: you are not allowed to enter petrol, parking costs or other car costs in your administration.

NB The government wants to increase the tax-free kilometer for travel expenses from 1 January 2023 from € 0.19 to € 0.21 per kilometre.
