Fuel advisory rates are used to calculate the amount of VAT a company can reclaim relating to the fuel element of the mileage allowance payments. These rates are also used for mileage claims when an individual has a company car but pays for fuel privately
These advisory fuel rates apply to all journeys on or after 1st September 2020 until further notice. For one month from the date of the change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose. Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.
Advisory Fuel Rates from 1st September 2020
These rates apply from 1st September 2020. You can use the previous rates for up to 1 month from the date the new rates apply.
Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.
|Engine size||Petrol - amount per mile||LPG - amount per mile||Diesel - amount per mile|
