Q:

What are the current Advisory Fuel Rates (AFRs)?

A:

Advisory fuel rates (or AFRs) are recommended reimbursement amounts for drivers reclaiming business mileage, usually for those in company vehicles.

HMRC review the advisory fuel rate based on fuel prices every quarter, and publish revised figures if required in late February, May, August and November each year.

Current Advisory Electricity Rate (AER)

NOTE: From September 1, 2018 HMRC introduced an advisory fuel rate (AFR) for pure electric cars at 4 pence per mile (ppl).

Called the Advisory Electricity Rate (AER), it has now been set at 5p per mile and is published alongside AFRs for petrol, diesel and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cars based on engine size.

Plug-in hybrid and hybrid cars will continue to be treated as either petrol or diesel models for mileage reimbursement purposes.
