You don't have to enter your mileage manually (although you can, if you really like typing). We use your location to track your trips automatically.

How automatic mileage tracking works

  1. Turn it on. Open the app on your mobile device, and tap the Mileage tab at the bottom of your screen (iOS) or tap Mileage from the menu (Android). Switch the Auto-tracking toggle to turn on automatic mileage tracking. Make sure you also enable location services in your device's settings.
  2. Take a trip. We automatically detect your starting and stopping locations when you're driving for all of your trips, both business and personal. This could be helpful in case of an audit, in which your government tax agency might want to see a complete mileage log with all of the miles you drove in a given year.
  3. Identify your allowable expense. Come back to Mileage after you take a work-related drive to categorise your trips. Just like you do with transactions, swipe right on your trip to categorise it as a personal trip, and swipe left to put it in a business category. Add a business purpose, assign the vehicle, save, and you're all set.

How to turn off mileage auto-tracking

You can turn off the auto-tracking feature by toggling off the Auto-tracking option in the Mileage tab in the mobile app.

You can also turn off location services for auto-mileage tracking altogether by going to the settings in your phone:


    1. Go to your phone Settings menu
    2. Select Privacy then Location Services
    3. Select Self-Employed
    4. Change selection from Always to Never


  1. Go to your phone Settings menu
  2. Select Privacy then Google Location Settings
  3. Select Location Reporting and Location History, and switch the slider to off for Self-Employed

Note: If you turn off location services, you can't automatically track your work-related trips anymore and will need to enter them into the app manually.
