Advisory Fuel Rates from 1 September 2018.

HMRC has announced new fuel rates for company cars. They apply to all journeys on or after 1 September until further notice.

For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new rates. They may, therefore, make or require supplementary payments, but are under no obligation to do either.

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.

The amounts can be used for VAT, but employers should retain receipts.

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

Engine size Petrol LPG

1,400cc or less 12p 7p

1,401cc to 2,000cc 15p 9p

Over 2,000cc 22p 13p

Engine size Diesel

1,600cc or less 10p

1,601cc to 2,000cc 12p

Over 2,000cc 13p
