The ATO requires a logbook be kept for a continuous 12 week period. As long as this period is representative of the normal business use of the vehicle it remains valid for five years ( for further information refer to the ATO website ).
This app is also suitable for use in other countries where car logbooks are kept for tax purposes e.g. New Zealand, UK (Company Vehicles benefits-in-kind), Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Netherlands, France, Canada etc.
The application can also be used by employees who use their own vehicle for work related travel and need to submit KM reimbursement claims to their employers.

Ratings and Reviews
it will log travel & use gps to automatically track trips. However you can’t put in start milage and gps track, as it will automatically go to the last milage you had from the last trip you wished to track.
for it to work properly you need to be continually tracking every time you get in the can.
Can work around some quirks, but major issue is I can't email any report in any format unless I setup the iPhone email app. I don't use the app as I use outlook or gmail. Sent a message to support but months later still no reply. So time to look for a better app, or should I say a working supported app.
Before I get a reply stating that it's fixed in the latest update, I thought I would add that my app is the latest version as I write this.
Developer Response ,
Yes, I am sorry, you need email in order to be able to email. This is nothing to do with the app. Or you could view it on the website which will have your backups. Or print it out. There are a lot of options.
Good a simple app to use. Had some app update issues during the iOS 12 intro, but seems to be more stable now.
I previously had a serious issue with it, but was attended to extremely promptly and also rectified. It’s a logbook app I’ll keep using.
