Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have announced the new Advisory Fuel Rates (AFR) for September 2015 ahead of the public holiday weekend.
Petrol vehicles 1400cc or less have had their rates decreased by one pence per mile (ppm), with the larger petrol vehicles remaining unchanged this quarter.
All diesel bands 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.

The new advisory fuel rates for the 1st of September 2015 are listed below in bold, previous rates in brackets. You can use the previous rates for up to 1 month from the date the new rates apply.
|1400cc or less||11p (12p)||7p (8p)|
|1401cc to 2000cc||14p (14p)||9p (9p)|
|Over 2000cc||21p (21p)||14p (14p)|

|Over 2000cc||13p (14p)|
Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.
For all current PEAK users the PEAK mileage system has already been updated with the new HMRC rates, therefore when the new rates come into effect on the 1st they will automatically change.
Rates are revised quarterly so check back for the next update which will take effect on 1st December 2015.
