Those rates in the link you noted are the maximum prescribed reimbursement for employees using their personal vehicle for employment purposes. Example, if you are employed by a company and you need to drive 200KM to a meeting using your personal vehicle. The company can reimburse you 200 x $0.58 = $116 for using your personal vehicle without it being a taxable benefit to you. If they reimbursed you more than 58c/KM it would be deemed to be a taxable benefit on your personal tax return.Messerschmitt wrote: ↑ Question for you.
If working for stuff like uber, ubereats, etc (person or food delivery), they consider you a contractor aka you are self employed right?
Can you claim this in this case?

Or is the link above only if you are an actual employee (which you are not with uber, ubereats and the like)?
And I assume the 58c/km would replace any need of keeping receipts for gas, maintenance, repairs, insurance, etc right? (as in you can't claim both 58c/km and expenses via receipt).
Am I right in my research that as a contractor aka self-employed I could only claim the actual expenses with receipt? (gas, maintenance, repairs, insurance?
Those rates aren't intended to be the amounts deducible for a self-employed person in lieu of tracking KM's and saving receipts.
