When using a private vehicle for business trips
As a general rule, the number of kilometres covered will be calculated with your usual workplace address as the place where your business trip starts and ends.

If this does not lead to a fair result either for the employee or for AU, another location may be used e.g. your home address. However, you will not be compensated for the number of kilometres which you normally cover between your home address and your workplace. You will compensated for the extra kilometres.

If you do not usually take your car to work, but, for example, take the train, you may be compensated for all the kilometres between your home address and your temporary place of work (e.g. the location of a meeting, course or conference).
