HMRC guidance states that the rates only apply when you either:

  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

You must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

The Advisory Electricity Rate for reimbursing employees for business travel in fully electric company cars is 4 pence per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
