    Private mileage



    Evening all,
    I have just been looking at the pay slip and noticed my company charge 49p a mile for private use. Thats with out the 3000 off my tax code to the tax man.
    I was wondering want the other have to pay. 49p seem a little excessive to me.

    49p depends on the vehicle.

    The AA has published charts for years and can be quite surprising. Have a look here.....

    Thanks Bri, That's an interesting read. worked out around 35p a mile. ( I think)
    I have been paying 15 to 25 a mile over the years. 49 come as a bit of a shock. Its not the most glamorous of vans to say the least.

    Have a chat with the friendly people at HMRC...
    If you are paying for private usage you should't get taxed for it.

    One or the other but not both at the same time as the girls says.

    .

    I have just changed jobs and got a new car which
    they charge 12p for, so that's a bit less than 49p

    That's what I thought Viking, I will see what the tax office say.
    12p a mile is a bit of a bargain rob, do you pay bik tax with that? .

    To be honest, I'm not sure?

    I fill out a mileage log that is linked to the fuel card and
    it automatically calculates personal & business miles
    and the deductions are shown in your payslip.

    It's a brand new system for me, I only started there this month
    and I have yet to see how well it works

    For all I know the 12p quoted might just be a ruse and they are charging me 49p

    I'll let you know next month if I'm looking for a new job or not

    Re: Private mileage

    What's the definition these days? As a youngster it used to be that all mileage to & from work, as well as between jobs.
    That seems to have eroded, but I don't know what the legal definition is - assuming there is one.

    At home, you are covered by Work Cover (the national work injury insurance scheme) fro. The moment you start your. Shucks in the morning to when you switch it off arriving home. However, all employers treat to & from home as private mirage. Go figure.
