What is Mileage Allowance

                    Mileage Tax Rebate 

There is a huge possibility that you are not getting the right mileage allowance or may not know that you are eligible for it.

Don’t worry here is a simple guide for you.  

Using your own vehicle for work

If you use your own vehicle or vehicles for work, you may be able to claim tax relief on the approved mileage rate. This covers the cost of owning and running your vehicle. You cannot claim separately for things like:

  • fuel
  • electricity
  • road tax
  • MOTs
  • repairs

To work out how much you can claim for each tax year you’ll need to:

  • keep records of the dates and mileage or your work journeys
  • add up the mileage for each vehicle type you’ve used for work
  • take away any amount your employer pays you towards your costs, (sometimes called a ‘mileage allowance’)

Using a company car for business

You can claim tax relief on the money you’ve spent on fuel and electricity, for business trips in your company car. Keep records to show the actual cost of the fuel.

If your employer reimburses some of the money, you can claim relief on the difference.

HMRC allows you to claim 45p per mile for the first 10,000 miles and 25p for over 10,000 miles for your fuel and other vehicle expenses.  

Business mileage

Traveling to visit worksites and meet clients from home for your job purposes is covered  under the business mileage.

You can claim within 4 years after the end of tax year. However, travelling from home to your permanent workplace is not eligible.
