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 March 2024 until further notice. For one month from the change date, employers may use the previous or new current rates as they choose. Employers may, therefore, make or require supplementary payments if they wish but are not obligated to do either.
Advisory Fuel Rates from 1st March 2024
Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.
|Petrol - amount per mile
|LPG - amount per mile
|Diesel - amount per mile
