Company Cars and Advisory Fuel Rates

HM Revenue & Customs have announced that, for all journeys on or after 1 June 2017, advisory fuel rates have been updated as a result of an increase in fuel prices. This rate applies where companies reimburse employees for business travel in their company car when the employees pay for all fuel. The rates can also be used for company car drivers who are required to reimburse all private mileage to their employer in order to avoid a taxable fuel benefit. For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose.

The new rates to be used from 1 June 2017 are as follows:-

Petrol / LPG Cars

Engine Size Petrol LPG
1400cc or less 11p 7p
1400cc to 2000cc 14p 9p
Over 2001cc 21p 14p


Diesel Cars

Engine Size Diesel
1600cc or less 9p
1600cc to 2000cc 11p
Over 2001cc 13p

For details of the rates in use prior to 1 June 2017 please see here.
