Advisory Fuel Rates from 1 December 2018

 

 

 

 

Fuel advisory rates are used to calculate the amount of VAT a company can reclaim relating to the fuel element of the mileage allowance payments. These rates are also used for mileage claims when an individual has a company car but pays for fuel privately

These advisory fuel rates apply to all journeys on or after 1 December 2018 until further notice. For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose. Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.
