As a food delivery driver for UberEATS, what is the industry code for my self-employment income? Also, do I have to CCA my vehicle if I want to claim vehicle expenses?

I started delivering food in my spare time for UberEATS in March 2017, and have continued to do it ever since. Overall I made about $2030 in 2017 doing so. I have filled out a T2125 for the income for this job, however, I am not sure what to enter for industry code. Keep in mind that I have never been signed up for Uber's Ride Sharing, and thus have only ever delivered food through UberEATS.

Also, I want to claim some motor vehicle expenses as a deduction against this self-employment income. I calculated that 7.6% of the total KMs that I drove since March 2017 in my personal car were KMs for UberEATS, so I would like to claim 7.6% of my fuel, maintenance and insurance costs from March 2017 to December 31, 2017. I am wondering if I have to CCA my personal car in order to do this? Personally, I would rather not CCA my car on my tax return if I do not have to.

492210 is the most appropriate Industry code for UBER Eats.

For your vehicle expenses, when you enter your total kms (both for the year and for business) and the total of all your expenses for the year, there's no obligation to take CCA for your vehicle. Just leave that section blank.
