Hello all,

In my Golf GTE I could claim 45p per mile but as I am moving to a BEV am I correctly assuming the rate is the same?

I have browsed some old threads dating back to 2016 so unsure if these figures are now accurate, according to the GOV website's myriad of pages I can only find the standard 45/25p per allowance, with no distinction against what fuel powers your car.

Yes 45p mile (up to 10K) is a very attractive rate for driving a BEV, I just wish I was doing more business miles at present! I had hoped my business mileage would have paid a chunk of monthly lease, but WFH almost exclusively has put the kibosh on that plan!

Short term issue for a once in 100 year event, global pandemic. Unless post 2021 we don't revert to old ways, which is possible. There certainly "cant" be the arguement it's not possible.

Yep 45p ( up to 10k miles) if it is your own car, or your personal lease ( as covers a contribution all costs of owning and running ) this also applies if you get a car allowance ( which is taxed). Company car users ( including salary sacrifice leases) get a lower fuel allowance, which for. BEV is 4p per mile.

In my work there was already a trend for it to be remote and post Covid I suspect most assignments will be remote based. Some customers will still prefer presentism but I suspect it will be a lot lower than pre Coronavirus.

In theory yes but quite a few employers, mine included, only reimburse fuel mileage rates if they pay a car allowance. I dont believe they should do this but there we are. Currently 4p a mile for an EV... which just about covers my actual electricity costs. It’s a pretty bad deal but during COVID continuing to get the taxed allowance has been a plus.

Shortfall between the 45p and actual paid can be claimed as an expense ( via hmrc( so tax back on difference)
