After being unchanged during the last quarterly review, advisory electricity rate (AER) for fully electric company cars increased by 1 pence, to 10 pence per mile. Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for AFRs.

The rates only apply when you either:

  • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars or
  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

You must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

The previous rates, which you can find here, can still be used for up to 1 month from when the date the new rates was applied.

If you have any queries regarding company cars, or mileage reimbursement, please email our Taxperts or call one of our offices.
