Advisory Fuel Rates

The HMRC review (and change) the advisory fuel rates every 3 months, these rates apply to vehicles running on Petrol, LPG and Diesel and are to be used for company cars only. Where a car is hybrid it is treated as either petrol or diesel.

HMRC have finally (August 18) published Advisory Electricity Rates for electric cars, this is set at 4 pence per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.

For ease we have placed the rates for the 2016-17 tax year to date in one place. You will see that the rates start from March 2016 this is because the rates are not reviewed in line with the tax year or tax periods.
