Advisory fuel rates for company cars

New company car advisory fuel rates have been published and took effect from 1 June 2022.

The guidance states: 'you can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply'. The rates only apply to employees using a company car.

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 June 2022 are:

Engine size Petrol
1400cc or less 14p
1401cc - 2000cc 17p
Over 2000cc 25p
Engine size LPG
1400cc or less 9p
1401cc - 2000cc 11p
Over 2000cc 16p
Engine size Diesel
1600cc or less 13p
1601cc - 2000cc 16p
Over 2000cc 19p

HMRC guidance states that the rates only apply when you either:

  • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars
  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

You must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

The Advisory Electricity Rate for fully electric cars is 5p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
