Advisory Fuel Rates For Company Cars

The new company car advisory fuel rates published by HMRC took effect from 1 September 2022. The new advisory fuel rates have increased for both petrol and diesel vehicles.

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.
