HMRC LATEST: New Advisory Fuel Rates for December 2009
27 November 2009
HM Revenue & Customs has confirmed it has scrapped the one-month notice period for changes to the Advisory Fuel Rate, the mileage rate paid to staff reclaiming business fuel using company vehicles. The rates themselves shift slightly upwards from 1 December.
"HMRC received representations from a number of external bodies and a high level of correspondence from individuals relating to the problem that in times of high fuel price volatility, the announced rates bore no relation to actual pump prices by the beginning of the AFR period," said a HMRC spokesman. "To bring the two into better alignment, it was suggested we remove the one month's notice."
