Advisory fuel rates have changed from quarter beginning 1 December 2023 for certain vehicles!
The rate for electric cars has been reduced to 9p per mile and hybrid cars are treated as petrol or diesel for these purposes. This reflects the slight decrease to electricity costs over recent months.
Other changes can be found in the main table
There are a few additional changes to petrol, diesel and LPG rates, which are all laid out in the table below 👇🏽
Advisory fuel rates are used in the following circumstances:
- to reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars; or
- to require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.
