Car Mileage Allowances and next month’s Budget?
Will next month’s Budget by the Chancellor have any effect on mileage allowances that you can claim for running your car as part of your job?
In 2011-2012 the approved mileage rates that you are entitled to, increased for the first time since 2002.
The current mileage allowance guidelines state you are now allowed up to 45 pence for every mile that you use your own car during the course of your job. If your employer pays you less than this, then you are entitled to put a claim in with HMRC for the difference as part of a rebate.
You can also look at additional rebates over the previous three years, so that’s four years in total. It has no effect on your employer whatsoever, the rebates will come straight from HMRC.
Many employees who are required to drive, for instance salespeople, careworkers and estate agents, aren’t aware of how much they could be getting because they don’t understand HMRC rules. Others don’t even realise that car mileage allowances exist for their benefit.
U-Tax Comment “With petrol prices starting to increase again and the amount companies are paying for their mileage allowances not following suit, employees are effectively taking a pay cut every time they drive their car. We’d ask for the Chancellor to announce in his budget, that HMRC Approved mileage rates will go up to compensate for this.
