HMRC Advisory Fuel Rates from 1st December 2015

HMRC Advisory Fuel Rates from 1st December 2015

HMRC Advisory Fuel Rates from 1st December 2015

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have announced the new Advisory Fuel Rates (AFR) for December 2015 in the midst of the Black Friday madness.

The larger Petrol vehicles 1401cc and over have had their rates decreased by one pence per mile (ppm), with the 1400cc or less vehicles remaining unchanged this quarter.

All diesel bands that were reduced by 1p have been reduced by one ppm reflecting the lower prices seen at the pumps in recent weeks.

AFR’s apply to companies that reimburse employees for business mileage in their company car or when employees need to repay the cost of fuel used for their own private use in a company car.
