Because said director has another well-paid job, he does not take a salary from the company where he is a director and shareholder. He does, however, travel to trade fairs and clients to represent his company.
His company has not yet reimbursed him for the business mileage that he has incurred during 05/06 and he would like to show it as an expense on his SA return.
It would appear that he is not able to do this because he has not received any income from this employment and therefore cannot make a 'loss' on this employment.
Is there a way around this, or will the company have to reimburse him for the expenses inorder for him to benefit?
Thanks is advance for your assistance.
