HMRC announces Advisory Fuel Rates for June

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced the Advisory Fuel Rates for the next quarter, which took effect from June 1, with only a small change to the rate for petrol engined cars above 2.0 litres.

The rate for petrol-engined cars of over 2000cc has now been reduced by 1p per mile to 21p from the previous 22p.

All other rates, for the quarter from June 1 to August 31, remain unchanged and are as follows:

The new rates are:

Engine size Petrol LPG
1400cc or less 11p 7p
1401cc to 2000cc 14p 9p
Over 2000cc 21p 14p

Engine size Diesel
1600cc or less 9p
1601cc to 2000cc 11p
Over 2000cc 13p

 

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.

The company car advisory fuel rates are used by organisations to reimburse drivers for fuel used in incurring business, rather than private mileage. Companies can use the old rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply.

The rates are based on current petrol and diesel prices from the Department for Energy and Climate Change, with the LPG taken from the UK average price from the AA website in the previous month.
