XYZ Solutions Pvt Ltd purchased a new vehicle for their employee Sonia to use for both work and private purposes on 1 November 2010.  The car cost $38,500 and they paid an extra $2,200 to have air-conditioning installed at the time. The car was provided to Sonia for her use (both work and private) from that date. Sonia was required to keep a logbook. This showed that 7,500 km were travelled up until 31 March 2011, and of these, 1,500 km were for business purposes.

Unfortunately in mid-December Sonia was involved in a traffic accident, which caused a substantial amount of damage to the work car. The repairs cost $3,300 (which was covered by insurance) and the car was off the road for 7 days while the repairs were being done.

  • Registration & insurance $1,200 (for 12 months), which was paid on 1 November 2010
