The HMRC advisory fuel rates have been changed with effect for all journeys undertaken on or after 1 December 2014. Until that date, the rates in brackets can be used.
These rates only apply to employees using a company car on business purposes.
1400cc or less, 13p (14p)
1401cc – 2000cc,16p (16p)
Over 2000cc,23p (24p)
1600cc or less,11p (11p)
1601cc – 2000cc,13p (13p)
Over 2000cc,16p (17p)
1400cc or less,9p (9p)
1401cc – 2000cc,11p (11p)
Over 2000cc,16p (16p)
These amounts can be paid tax-free subject to the usual conditions. The simple conditions are that the journey should be documented and mileage actually recorded at the time that the journey is undertaken in the company vehicle.
Different fuel rates apply where the trip is made in the employees own car, and these (higher) fuel rates reflect the costs of ownership, insurance and repairs, as well as the simple cost of the specific journey.
