New company car advisory fuel rates have been published which take effect from 1 September 2020. The rates only apply to employees using a company car. The guidance states:
‘You can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply.’
The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 September 2020 are:
|1400cc or less||10p|
|1401cc – 2000cc||12p|
|1400cc or less||7p|
|1401cc – 2000cc||8p|
|1600cc or less||8p|
|1601cc – 2000cc||10p|
HMRC guidance states that the rates only apply when you either:
- reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars or
- 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 4 pence per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
