mileage for business trips

mileage for business trips

Didn't find your answer?

Hi,

An employee is using a company's car for both business and personal trips. What are the options for him to claim business mileage for business trips on the company's car? He also has company's credit card which can be used for petrol. 

Thanks

This question seems to be back to front. Should you not be deciding how to deal with personal use?

And are HMRC aware?

Yes, HMRC is already aware of the car benefit.

At the moment he pays himself for personal and business trips for which he wants to claim back. However, not sure if it is the correct way of doing it.

What 8s there to claim from the company when the company is already shouldering all the expenses?

''At the moment he pays himself for personal and business trips for which he wants to claim back. However, not sure if it is the correct way of doing it''

With the other brief answers given by the OP, I wonder if she is saying - he is paying for all trips personally (sentence structure confusing!) and that there is a business card that CAN be used (but isnt being used?).

Perhaps the OP can explain more clearly.

Apologies for my confusing answers. Correct, he is paying for all trips personally. There is a business card that he can used which is not being used at the moment.

As linked below reimburse business miles on the HMRC agreed rate.

Maybe beware using the business card if there are private miles for fear of triggering a fuel benefit charge as well as car benefit

In future, ask your accountant, and don't leech free advice off this site.
