The latest advisory fuel rates (AFR) for company car users have been published by HMRC. These are effective from 1 September 2021 and mileage rates have increased by 1p or more for all petrol and diesel vehicles.

The rates only apply in the below circumstances:

  • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars; or
  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

These rates cannot be used in any other circumstances.

The advisory electricity rate for fully electric cars is unchanged at 4p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.

When employees are reimbursed for business travel in their company cars, HMRC will accept there is no taxable profit and no Class 1A national Insurance to pay.
