    Yes you can claim return mileage - so if you go somewhere 5 miles away you put 10x45p = £4.50 into your accounts. I enter it into my accounts as 'Trip to x park' 10 miles £4.50 x
    x

    I claim for all mileage for journeys I do during working hours - whether it is an actual outing or a trip to town to take back MY library books or buy milk for MY cuppa as all trips can be made into learning experiences - and yes I claim for travelling back home too!

    Yes, if it is all honest and written down that is fine. If you are ever asked you can explain your mistake in the previous year- that kind of thing happens all the time as we realise we can claim for things we didn't think of before.

    Not so easy to say- you would be driving the journey anyway for your own son. I would not feel right claiming that, if it was me.
