    I am begining to wonder if private hire drivers are aware that they can make these claims. The challange is apportioning the expenses between generating income and using it for private use. Nowdays if you operate your consultancy or business from your HDB, you make tax deductible claims based on rent proxy for using a room within the flat. In the past HDB did allow HDB flat to used at all so the tax authorities will not allow it. Now they do. But not many are aware of this.

    I suspect the same with private hire drivers.

    Taxi drivers everything also can claim. Diesel, rental, even car wash also can claim. No such luck with UG drivers.

    One reason could be that taxi cos. pay a taxi license fee to our gov. UG tout their biz as a app for mobile, and do not pay any license fees to gov. Of course, there could be other reasons as well.

    The other difference btw taxi drivers and UG drivers is when the car is involved in a accident. Taxi drivers max. outlay is $1,000 (this one hearsay only). UG drivers, if rental, the outlay could be $4,280, if it is the UG driver fault. Worst still, some rental companies like LCR (Uber rental arm) will continue to charge you rental when the car is under repair at the workshop. For own car, commercial insurance excess will be very high (close to 4k).

    Scroobal,

    IRAS reason for not allowing deductions on rental, petrol etc. is because it is difficult to determine the amount of time each driver spent on driving UG, hence difficult to appropriate the cost. However, this can be easily solved by allowing a certain % of gross income as costs. Say you earned 30k from UG, and allow to deduct 30% as costs, hence, nett income will be 21k.

    That's why I try to limit my income to about 50k per year, and try not to cross too much into 7% tax bracket. Cost as a % of income for UG should be about 40 - 50%. Paying 7% on gross income is similar to 14% on nett income (if costs constitute 50%).

    Not to forget that most UG cars are running on petrol. The tax we pay on the petrol, is then taxed again as part of our income. Double taxation.

    Thanks bro for patiently explaining this. There is a lot of flux not just here but around the world. I guess it will take sometime to get this right for all parties.

    Riders always want cheapest option. First hitch/pool then the other options.
    If they insist sit behind what can person giving lift do, except take note and avoid in future.

    He can refuse la.
    Sit infront or behind might be no issue to some.
    But for someone who drive hitch means he want face a lot and won't be caught dead looking like an Ahmad.
    Now with the proliferation of private hire cars. I've banned my family and maid from siting behind when front passenger seat is vacant. Only exception is the family dog. I dun want to be mistaken as a UG driver

    Feed family must see eat in food court or restaurant. Kids must see go elite or Neighbourhood schools. Such is the culture in sg.
    Imagine if you UG driver queuing up to pick up your kids from school along with the other parents.....they see the decal thot your kids booked uber.
