Fuel Rates Increase – April 2017

HMRC has updated its advisory fuel rates (AFRs) with effect from 1 April 2017. These are the rates for reimbursement of fuel costs which can be used by employers and employees to avoid the car fuel benefit in kind charge arising. The new fuel rates must be used from the 1st April. The table shows the new AFRs.

AFRs can also be used to work out the fuel element of mileage allowances that you pay to your employees for using their own cars for business, so you can reclaim VAT on them. For example, if you paid an allowance of 30p per mile to an employee with a 1,500cc petrol car, you can treat 14p as relating to fuel and reclaim VAT of 2.33p.
