ADVISORY FUEL RATES INCRESE FROM 1 MARCH 2019
Published on 25-02-2019Email To Friend    Print Version

The advisory electricity rate for fully electric cars is 4p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.

The advisory fuel rates apply from 1 March 2019 and have not increased on the previous quarter rates. The previous rates can be used for up to one month from the date the new rates apply.  The rate can be found by clicking here.

The rates only apply in the following circumstances:

  • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars; or
  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

These rates cannot be used in any other circumstances. If the rates are used, it is not necessary to apply for a dispensation to cover the payments made.

When employees are reimbursed for business travel in their company cars, HMRC will accept there is no taxable profit and no Class 1A national Insurance to pay.
