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.
