Are You A Care Worker? Claim Money Back For Mileage!

Are you a care worker using your own car for work? Whether you visit clients in the community, travel between different clinics, homes or hospitals or work at a temporary workplace, it is very likely that you are entitled to claim tax relief on the miles you clock up whilst working.

It’s Up To You!

  • It is up to you the employee to make a claim for a mileage tax rebate; your employer is not responsible. 
  • Many care workers are paid some mileage allowance by their employer, if this is the case for you it is still probable that you can claim more money back.
  • It is also important to note that you can only claim tax relief on miles traveled whilst you are working, you cannot claim a rebate for any mileage that can be classed as normal commuting.

How Much Mileage Tax Rebate Can A Care Worker Claim?

For any mileage travelled as part of your job you can claim tax relief for up to 45p per mile for the first 10,000 miles and then 25p a mile after that.

Remember you are claiming the tax relief on these amounts; you will not receive 40p or 25p for each mile, just the tax- usually around 20%.


If you are claiming for 10,000 miles then the calculation that will be used to work out your rebate will be as follows;

(10,000 miles x 45p = £4500) x 20%(Tax relief)  = £800. So, if you put in a claim for 10,000 miles (at 45p per mile) you will get around £800 back if successful.

You will not receive the full 45p per mile (which would work out as £4,000).

What Do I Need?

It is useful for care workers to keep records of the number of miles they have travelled whilst doing their job although. It is still possible to make a claim without records but it is more difficult – Tax Rebate Service can help you if this is the case. Care workers should also note that they can backdate mileage tax rebate claims for up to four years.
