I have seen the advisory fuel rates issued in Feb19 and have sent them to our payroll section so that they can review our setups. They have told me that these rates only apply to company cars - of which we have none.
They have confirmed that they are paying the same rates as petrol 0.45 p mile for our electric car claims (we don't have many)- Payroll say that they are doing this in the absence of any further guidance from HMRC. They then only claim 5% vat and are taking employees electricity bills as proof of vat.
Whilst the 0.45p per mile is a composite rate for fuel, wear and tear etc I do think that they should be showing a reduced fuel rate within this calc for electric cars.
Should these HMRC advisory fuel rates form the basis of the fuel element for our composite rate? I sanybody else paying employees for electric car mileage?
