I have a client who works from home, via a Ltd Co.
He has bought a 49g/km plug-in hybrid car, through the company, and will pay the car benefit charge at 7% (for 2016/17)
The question is about private fuel, and how he can avoid the fuel benefit.
He plans to charge the car using his own electricity, but would like the company to pay the petrol (and reclaim the VAT).
So what would be the best to prove that the petrol only covered business miles ?
I am guessing that having a full business mileage log and use some reasonable mpg figure to prove that the litres of petrol purchased by the company are equal to, or less than, the business miles travelled.
Has anyone got a better idea ?
