What is Mileage Allowance?
If you drive your personal vehicle for work related travel, you could be due a tax refund. However, this does not include travelling from home to work.
A lot of Employers do not reimburse their Employees the full HMRC set amount which is 45p per mile for the first 10,000 miles in a car or van and 25p per mile for any miles over 10,000. This amount is set by HMRC and is there to cover fuel and other vehicle costs. HMRC are aware of employer underpaying and allow you to claim back the difference. You cannot claim for, Congestion charges, ULEZ charges, Tolls, Parking, or VAT on any of these.
Mileage allowance reduces your taxable pay, so works like a refund, reimbursing you for overpaid tax.
Define business mileage?
Business mileage is any mileage you incur in fulfilling duties of your job, its does not include travelling from home to permanent workplace. However, if you are travelling to different site/sales visits from home rather than your normal permanent workplace, this is eligible.
What if my Employer already reimburses me?
You may still be able to claim depending on how much your employer pays you per mile. HMRC has set out a rates table for cars, van, motorcycle and trucks which can be found on their website. The difference can be claimed, you do not need to calculate anything, our calculators will automatically calculate what you may be able to claim.
