Robert T wrote:How do you claim VAT on mileage, Bill? As I understand it, you are paid for the miles you do, to cover cost of fuel and wear and tear on your car. It is almost impossible to apportion a bill for fuel to any particular journey, unless you use more than 1 tank (note that this is different for company cars, but that's not what we are talking about). If we should be doing this, then it would help the company, but I don't see how you can?

I travel 20 miles for work and put 60 litres in an empty tank. Company pays me £8 expenses. I pay £84 to fill my tank and give the receipt to my company who then reclaim £14 VAT. How can this be right?

HMRC publish a set of Advisory Fuel Rates for company cars HERE that are used when a company car driver has to either a) claim fuel costs for business mileage; or b) reimburse the fuel cost of private mileage when the company has paid for all the fuel. For people taking a car allowance plus mileage payments then if agreed with HMRC they can also be used to deteremine the proportion of the 40p/mile that corresponds to fuel. To reclaim VAT you need a VAT invoice even though it is a notional cost that is being reclaimed. I did notice after a time that Tesco switched to automatically providing a VAT receipt whilst at other garages you specifically had to ask for one.
