Advisory fuel rate for company cars

Unbelievably there were very few changes to the HMRC advisory fuel rates from 1 March 2022, which may not have been your experience at the filling station! Now that the increased road fuel prices have fed through into the HMRC calculations there are some significant increases from 1 June 2022.

These are the suggested reimbursement rates for employees’ private mileage using their company car.

Remember that provided any private fuel is fully reimbursed the employee will not be taxed on the fuel benefit and there is no class 1A employers NIC.

Where the employer does not pay for any fuel for the company car these are the amounts that can be reimbursed in respect of business journeys from 1 June 2022.
