How can I track my mileage as an Expense?

FreshBooks makes it easy to keep track of your spending with Expenses, especially mileage. This is helpful if you are required to document business-related travel for your business and for tax deductions.

Follow these steps to track your mileage as Expenses:

  1. Go to the Expenses tab
  2. Click on the New Expense button
  3. Fill out the expense with the Amount as the cost of fuel and if you’d like, add the name of the gas station in the Vendor field
  4. For the category, select Mileage under Car & Truck Expenses
  5. In the Notes, specify how far you’ve traveled and any trip details
  6. Assign it to a Client by checking off the Assign To Client option if you are planning to rebill it to them
  7. Feel free to check off Attach Image of Receipt and upload a receipt
  8. Click on the Add Expense button and you’re done.
