Hi all,

I have a client who uses over 70% of his personal car for the business. The business is a Pty Ltd company. However, the car is registered under his personal name. Would he be able to claim GST on MV expneses such as petrol, insurance, registration and maintenance? If it is not possible under this arrangement, what does he have to do to be able to cliam the GST input tax credit?

Thank you for your help.

He would be able to claim the business usage on his personal tax.  As the expense is not the companies it is not an expense that can be claimed by the business.  If he is getting paid a wage he could be paid a car allowance to cover these expenses.
