New company car advisory fuel rates have been published and took effect on 1 September 2023.  Please note, these rates only apply to employees using a company car.

The guidance states: ‘you can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply’.

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 September 2023 are:

Engine Size – Petrol Fuel Rate
1400cc or less 13p
1401cc – 2000cc 16p
Over 2000cc 19p
Engine Size – LPG
1400cc or less 10p
1401cc – 2000cc 12p
Over 2000cc 19p
Engine Size – Diesel
1600cc or less 12p
1601cc – 2000cc 14p

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 10p per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.
