    New company car advisory fuel rates have been published and took effect from 1 June 2022.

    The guidance states: ‘you can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply’. The rates only apply to employees using a company car.

    The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 June 2022 are:

    Engine sizePetrol
    1400cc or less14p

    1601cc – 2000cc16p

    HMRC guidance states that the rates only apply when you either:

    • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars
    • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

    You must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

    The Advisory Electricity Rate for fully electric cars is 5p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
