Motor expenses

Enter in your cash flow forecast the cost of running any business vehicles. (Don't include the cost of the vehicle itself - include that under 'Capital expenditure'.)

Running costs include:

  • the cost of fuel used for business purposes. This will include driving to and from bookings
  • servicing and repairs
  • replacement tyres, exhausts and so on
  • road tax

Travel expenses

Travel expenses include all the other expenses incurred on business travel that is not made by car. For example these might include hotel expenses.

Some of these costs, such as fuel, you will incur every month. Others, such as road tax, you can pay annually, every six months, or in monthly instalments (by direct debit). Enter your estimate of motor and travel expenses in the months when you expect to pay them.
