I think this is a silly question, but I just want to double check -
I have a friend who is employed and does a lot of business mileage (about 9,000 for this tax year). She is only reimbursed 30p per mile and as she can claim up to 45p per mile, I am going to do a tax return for her to claim back the additional 15p (which on 9,000 miles is quite significant money). My question is does she get a full reimbursement of the 15p when her tax return has been filed or just the tax relief on the 15p?
A couple of other questions from this:
- Dos the additional mileage go within the employment section of the tax return as an unclaimed disbursement?
- Next year there is the possibility that she will do > 10,000 miles but the flat rate I believe remains 30p. Is it the same treatment that some mileage she can reclaim 15p on but some she will owe back 5p?
