Fuel Allowance

The boss wants to give some employees who use their own car to carry tools etc an allowance of around $50 per week as a contribution to their fuel cost.


I don't think he can legitimately refund a fuel receipt and claim it as his own fuel expense so I want to confirm how this should be handled. My assumption is that we set up a Fuel Allowance Payroll Category and set the Tax Category to Allowance - Travel. The we simply add the $50 per week to this category for the selected employees. Is that about right?
