HMRC have published new advisory fuel rates for company car drivers which will apply from 1 September 2017.

The new rates will be:

Engine size Petrol     Diesel    LPG      
1,400cc or less 11p   7p
1,600cc or less   9p  
1,401cc - 2,000cc 13p   8p
1,601cc to 2,000cc     11p  
Over 2,000cc. 21p 12p 13p


The current rates can be used up until 30 September 2017, see Advisory fuel rates (company car drivers).

These rates can be used to calculate reimbursements of business fuel to employees on company cars, reimbursements by employees for private use of company cars to avoid a fuel benefit in kind charge and by businesses to calculate the amount of VAT that can be recovered on fuel

Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using as their primary TAX resource.

At a cost of just £1 per day, it’s a no brainer: FREE up your MIND and your TIME (and your wallet).
