As an allowance in their name and pay info details, enter the name of allowance and the rate, and when you do the pays you just have to enter the klms for that pay. Enter the allowance first in the Manage payroll items - new -and then assign to employee in their details

Current ATO rate is 0.68c/km I think above that is taxable

So if you are paying .70c/km you will need two payroll items setup and enter the kms into each one.  Also need to watch the total kms paid in the year as Tim says.
