One of the most labour intensive, time consuming and error-prone processes that any fleet manager must do, is calculating the off-road distance travelled for a vehicle to claim RUC refunds for off-road travel - a process that doesn’t always result in you getting the largest refund.
You are entitled to claim a refund against any RUC licence for travel off a public road. This includes driveways, service stations, carparks and job sites. You’d be surprised how quickly all this off-road travel can add up - a lot of which would never be recorded in manual driver logbooks.
TrackIt’s database contains records of the location of all public roads in New Zealand, which allows us to compare all travel of your vehicles recorded by our advanced GPS tracking devices against that database to know what travel is on public roads and what travel is off-road.
TrackIt’s off-road distance calculator makes the refund process painless, fast and accurate. In most cases TrackIt’s RUC Refund feature is sufficient to cover the cost of implementing our solution, before considering all the other benefits we provide. At least 5% of the distance travelled by most vehicles will generally be off-road.
