Company car advisory fuel rates updated

Company car advisory fuel rates updated

HM Revenue & Customs has amended the advisory fuel rates for company cars with effect from 1 September 2012.

The rates – HMRC’s guidelines for fuel mileage rates for company cars – apply to all journeys made on or after 1 September, 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. Petrol hybrid cars are treated as petrol cars for this purpose.
