Private car expenses
Hoping someone can confirm whether I'm right on this.
If an employed personal uses their own car for business use but does not receive any compensation from their employer they can claim the 40p/25p a mile approved rates in box 17 of the employment pages but cannot claim either actual motor expenses or CA's.
If someone had asked me the question yesterday I would have answered without hesitating and the notes to the employment pages seem to agree with my understanding, but I've been thrown by the outgoing accountant claiming business fuel (using the actual price not the approved rate) plus a percentage of road tax, finance charge and capital allowances (although restricted to £3k as expensive car).
