Minimum Mileage Claim %
Sole Proprietor business: I input my Kms driven in the year to earn business income & the total kms driven in the year. The percentage for business useage was 9.8%.
Does CRA have a minimum percentage threshold I have to be over before I can claim the business mileage on my T2125 form? ie: is a % under 10% allowed.
There is no minimum claim requirement for business use of your personal vehicle. Just be sure you keep your log and have all supporting vehicle receipts.
You can deduct 100% of parking fees incurred for business and any supplementary business insurance you purchased for your vehicle.
There is, however, a restriction on claiming inputs tax credits
(ITCs) for your vehicle if business use is less than 10%.
You are not eligible to claim ITCs when business use is under 10%. Edited for clarification:
The ITC restriction is for GST/HST on the vehicle (the asset) itself. You can still claim ITCs on the operating expenses of your vehicle.P.S.
