Planning notes:

It is possible to use these rates and apply them to private mileage if employers pay for their employees’ private fuel costs. Employees can then reimburse employers (recorded private mileage x the appropriate rate per mile). In this way the employer will not have to pay Class 1A NICs on the cash benefit of providing the fuel, and the employee will not be taxed on the benefit. In many, but not all cases, this reimbursement will result in overall cash savings for both parties. To be certain, it is wise to make the relevant calculations and we can help.
