Simple to use

Great app. Simple to use and saves lots of time trying to maintain spreadsheets for business travel

Utterly pointless

This app does nothing but add an extra step to expense claims. Utterly useless.

Developer Response ,

Hi jdndhehrjfjfnf,

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, we don't really understand what you are finding to be an extra step.  

Here is a list of the steps the app automates so you don't have to do it manually...

- calculates your mileage expenses using HMRC mileage rates
- calculates company car mileage rates using the HMRC Advisory Fuel Rates
- calculates the VAT on fuel for both company cars and privately owned cars
- calculates mileage rates for bicycles, motorbikes, passengers etc too
- creates a mileage claim and publishes it to your Accounting app. This is where the app adds the most value. It publishes mileage expenses to Xero Bills, Xero Classic Expenses, Crunch and all major Accounting software via Dext.

Can you please contact us at and explain the issue so we understand it better and can act on it.
