VAT fuel scale charge - private car

VAT fuel scale charge - private car

Hi all

A number of employees have company cars and both their private and business mileage is paid for (with a company fuel card). The vat fuel scale charge is applied to these vehicles.

Does the fuel scale charge also apply to privately/employee owned cars who have a fuel card (i.e. the private & business miles are paid for)?

I've checked the HMRC website but nothing clear.

Many thanks!

The issue is not ownership of the car. The reason the fuel scale charge is used is because the business pays for all fuel, and the car is used for business and private purposes.
