Pro Tip for Canadian Business Owners: Crafting a Clear Mileage Reimbursement Policy

To avoid any conflict when it comes to reimbursements, we recommend creating a written  mileage reimbursement policy that includes the following details:

  • Which trips qualify for reimbursement? Provide examples of approved business related travel (client meetings and deliveries) as well as non reimbursable travel (commute mileage). 
  • What reimbursement rate will be used? Indicate if you will be using the CRA rate or a company-specific rate for reimbursement.
  • What documentation is required to submit a claim? Identify which records must be provided when submitting a reimbursement claim (e.g., mileage logbook, trip details, Timeero logs).
