HMRC announces revised advisory fuel rates

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has revised advisory fuel rates for all journeys on or after 1 December.

For the first time, the revised rates will take effect immediately after the month’s notice previously given for the change was withdrawn. Employers making or collecting payments at the superseded rate because they have not been able to change their systems in time may use their judgement on whether to make or require a second payment in respect of the same period in order to apply the new rate from its effective date.

The new rates in pence per mile:

Engine size Petrol Diesel LPG
1400cc or less 11p 11p 7p
1401cc to 2000 cc 14p 11p 8p
Over 2000cc 20p 14p 12p
