It is important to note that Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars, whereas the Advisory Electricity Rate for fully electric car is 4 pence per mile. HMRC does not consider electricity as a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.

Please also keep in mind that these rates only apply in the following two scenarios:

  • When an employee must be reimbursed for work-related travel in a company car or;
  • When an employee must repay the company for personal travel in a company car.

Make sure that you are aware of these rates so that you process your business expenses properly. Additionally, if you are an employee who makes use of a company car, then this is also important to verify with your employer.
