Can I claim motor vehicle expenses, fuel and oils and interest on installment sale when I was using the vehicle for business purposes? In addition, I received a travel allowance every month.

Yes, you will be able to claim running costs, i.e. fuel, oil, insurance, license, etc costs, but you won't be able to claim the capital allowance on the vehicle. Please refer to our blog on claiming car expenses.
