HMRC has published new advisory fuel rates for company car drivers, which will apply from 1 December 2021. The new rates see an increase of 1p per mile for petrol and diesel vehicles with engines of 1400-2000cc and an increase of 2p per mile for petrol engines over 2000cc and a 1p increase for diesel engines over 2000cc.
These rates can be used by employers wishing to pay their employees the cost of fuel for business journeys in company cars (where the employee pays for all fuel costs), or where the employer pays for all fuel, for reimbursement of private mileage by company car drivers.
A few points to note:
- These rates should be used in relation to cars, not vans
- Hybrid cars can be treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose
- For fully electric cars, the advisory electricity rate has increased to 5p, however, electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes
