Advisory fuel rates for company cars

Posted December 27, 2021 in  Legislation Changes | Uncategorized

New company car advisory fuel rates have been published and took effect from 1 December 2021.

The guidance states: ‘you can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply’. The rates only apply to employees using a company car.

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 December 2021 are:

Engine size Petrol

1400cc or less 13p

1401cc – 2000cc 15p

Over 2000cc 22p

Engine size LPG

1400cc or less 9p

1401cc – 2000cc 10p

Over 2000cc 15p

Engine size Diesel

1600cc or less 11p

1601cc – 2000cc 13p

Over 2000cc 16p

HMRC guidance states that the rates only apply when you either:

• reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars

• require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

You must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

The Advisory Electricity Rate for fully electric cars is 4p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
