Advisory Fuel Rates For Company Cars

The new company car advisory fuel rates published by HMRC took effect from 1 June 2022. With many employees left  short-changed within days of the rates in March being published, it is welcome news that the record pump prices have been reflected in the new advisory fuel rates.

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken from 1 June are:

Engine SizePetrol
1400cc or less14p
1401cc - 2000cc17p
Over 2000cc25p
Engine SizeLPG
1400cc or less9p
1401cc - 2000cc11p
Over 2000cc16p
Engine SizeDiesel
1600cc or less13p
1601cc - 2000cc16p
Over 2000cc19p

The advisory electricity rate for reimbursing employees for business travel in fully electric company cars remains at 5 pence per mile and hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for advisory fuel rates.

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.
