Claiming mileage tax relief 

How much can I claim back per mile?

The mileage tax relief calculator uses the current approved mileage rates of 45p per mile for the first 10,000 business miles and 25p per mile for every business mile after that.

The rate at which you pay tax can affect the amount you are owed. For example if you pay tax at 40% and the total figure you are claiming is £2000 you will receive a mileage tax rebate of £800 (which is 40% of £2000).

How far back can I claim for a mileage tax refund?

You can claim mileage tax relief for the last four tax years. You don’t need to be with the same employer to be able to claim.

Am I eligible to claim mileage tax back?

Many people are unaware that claiming mileage tax relief is possible and miss out on what they are entitled to. However claiming mileage is not allowable for normal commuting to and from one place of work, and you will only be eligible to claim a mileage tax refund if you travel to a temporary workplace.

I’m paid by my employer.. can I still claim a mileage tax refund?

It depends on how much you are paid and if it is taxed.

Taxed mileage allowance:

A taxed mileage allowance paid by your employer means you can still claim back the full approved mileage rates.

Untaxed mileage allowance:

If you’re paid an untaxed mileage allowance a claim will only be possible on the difference between the approved mileage rates, and what you are paid by your employer. If your employer has paid you the full approved mileage rates and not taxed it, you become ineligible.

Do I need records to claim mileage tax relief?

Having records is helpful but not always necessary. We can talk you through what other options are available if actual records aren’t available.

Over £2,000 tax rebate

As a builder, Mark didn’t think he was entitled to any travel tax relief. He just went to the site every day and got some mileage from his employer. But then he had a chat with Mick, one of our clients, and realised that he was actually in the position to claim back a substantial amount of tax relief. He had originally started work on one permanent site, but had then been sent to another construction job for its 9 month duration – which means we could apply for mileage to a ‘temporary workplace’ for him. Although his employer paid him some mileage, it wasn’t the full government allowance, so we could claim the difference. Added to this some tools he bought for work and a daily subsistence allowance and Mark ended up with over £2,000.

“Thank-you for all your help and advice. I’ll be keeping a travel log and receipts for next year’s claim.”

Mark, Construction worker, Cardiff, received over £2,000 Travel expenses tax relief
