Company Cars – Advisory Fuel Rates

The Inland Revenue have announced that, for all journeys on or after 1 September 2014, 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 September 2014 are as follows:-

Petrol / LPG Cars

Engine Size Petrol LPG
1400cc or less 14p 9p
1400cc to 2000cc 16p 11p
Over 2001cc 24p 16p


Diesel Cars

Engine Size Diesel
1600cc or less 12p
1600cc to 2000cc 14p
Over 2001cc 17p
For details of the rates in use prior to 1 September 2014 please see here.
