March 2017 AFR rates
In the latest announcement from HMRC, there have been quite a few changes to the AFR.
Most rates remain the same as the December AFR rates this quarter, however, those vehicles with a displacement of over 2001cc increase by one pence per mile (ppm) for petrol and LPG vehicles.
The AFR rates apply to all journeys on or after 1st March 2017 and for one month from the date of change, employers are able to choose to use either the previous or new current rates. Employers may, therefore, make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.
Use of AFRs (Advisory Fuel Rates)
AFRs can be used to negotiate dispensations for mileage payments for business travel in company cars.
They are meant to reflect actual average fuel costs at the time they are set and save time for both employers and HMRC by setting out some figures that can be used in the majority of cases. They give employers more certainty about what the mileage rates that they choose to apply mean for tax and National Insurance contributions (NICs).
The rates only apply where employers:
- reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars
- or require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel
The rates are advisory only.
Current and past AFR rates can be seen here on Comcar at http://www.comcar.co.uk/afrs.
