HMRC Changes to Advisory Fuel Rates – December 2019

Every 3 months, HMRC review the advisory fuel rates

Every 3 months, HMRC review the advisory fuel rates. They apply to employees using a company car if:

  • You reimburse employees for business travel
  • Or require employees to repay the cost of private travel

These are “fuel only” rates, and if you use them, you have certainty that you are claiming no more than the true cost of fuel used on business journeys and so will not be taxed on a ‘fuel benefit’.

These rates apply from 1st December 2019.
