Update to mileage allowances from 1 April 2016

The government-approved mileage allowance for contractors using their own vehicles for Computers in Homes work has been reduced from 77 cents to 74 cents.  There is no GST component in claims for these amounts, as payments are being made to an end user.  The contract templates for technicians and rejuvenation WOFs/surveys have been updated accordingly (v2, dated 7 April 2016).  All contractors claiming mileage allowances should be advised of this change from 1 April 2016.

  1. Thanks Laurence, I’ll adjust billing codes accordingly. I’m surprised it’s ‘gone down’ especially when it doesn’t ‘go up’ to reflect rising petrol prices!

  2. Hi Laurence

    All of our existing contracts to June and July have the current rates of 77cents in them. It would require a contract amendedment for multiple contracts. The time to do this would potentially outweigh the benefit of changing it at this point. What do we do?
