    Would I be right in thinking I take it from here...

    http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/cars/advisory_fuel_current.htm


    In my case a 1.9 diesel is 13p per mile I repay?

    Thanks

    if you are supplied with a fuel card you must reimburse the employer every penny spent to be free of the benefit charge not just the private mileage.

    hope this helps?

    Extract from HMRC website in respect to HMRC advisory fuel rates (sorry as a 'new user' I can not upload weblinks)

    Employers who require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel

    Providing that all of the miles of private travel have been properly identified, HMRC will accept that there is no fuel benefit charge, and therefore no Class 1A NICs liability, where the employer uses the appropriate rate from the current table (or any higher rate) to work out the cost of fuel used for private travel that the employee must repay to the employer.

    Thanks,

    So if I use the rate from HMRC, I.e. 13p per mile in my case I will be ok?

    Eg, if I did 100 miles I would pay 100 x 13p £13.00???


    I am confused as to if it is just this, or should I be paying the amount actually spent on the fuel card? But this obviously varies as prices change etc, so almost impossible to calculate at-the end of the year.

    I was under the impression that provided an accurate mileage log is kept and it clearly separates business and personal miles it is simply a case of reimbursing employer at end of the year.

    Only if the card issued is used and personal miles not refunded would it become a tax issue?

    Please can someone provide some clarity?

    Thanks

    Yes, you are correct and dori2o is incorrect.

    Mikeyboy,

    The use of HMRC advisory fuel rates is the first port of call. However, if you can prove a different rate (pro-rata fuel card costs between private and business mileage) you could use this rate per mile.

    I would suggest that you use whatever is better for you, keep the appropriate records and be consistent.

    We had a recent visit form HMRC who looked at this and they seemed happy with it.
