HMRC challenge on mileage allowance

Given the increase in petrol costs, a client is now paying his staff 47 pence per mile allowance for use of their cars for business. This is 7 pence per mile higher than HMRC guidelines.

Since it is easy to demonstrate that this is the real cost - and many estimates eg the AA suggest that it is much, much higher - how will HMRC cope with this claim ?

Best wishes,

Mike

Not HMRC Guidelines - It's the Law.
