HMRC publishes latest AFR rates
The new rates, which can be used by company car drivers to claim for business mileage, are:
Engine size Petrol Diesel LPG
1400cc or less 13p 12p 9p
1401cc to 2000cc 15p 12p 10p
Over 2000cc 21p 15p 15p
Rates see a 1p rise for all fuel types in the small engine category compared to the previous rates.
Mid-size diesels between 1401 and 2001cc also gain a 1p rise. However the rate for large-engined diesel vehicles drops 1p. Meanwhile the figure for larger LPG vehicles goes up by 1p.
The new rates are effective from 1 December 2010 until further notice. Employers may use either the previous or new current rates for the next month.
HMRC adds that 'Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.'
