Claim your mileage tax refund now

by Kobus Van den Bergh | Aug 10, 2016
  • UK contractors often do work that requires them to move across the country-side. Even if you’re not a contractor, you can claim back a portion of the money you spend on your business-related transport. This is what is often referred to as a mileage tax refund.

    Who is eligible?

    Contractors, freelancers, permanent employees and even temps are all potentially eligible to claim. Whether you’ve used your car just once or if you do so every day you could be eligible to claim back money from HMRC.

    The only criterion is whether the mileage you racked up in your car was in order to fulfil your duties of employment.

    What can you claim back on?

    Visits to clients, travelling to offices that are not your regular place of work and even trips to the bank can all be claimed back. Unfortunately, you won’t get a tax refund based on you commute to and from your regular place of work. You can, however, claim tax relief on petrol you purchase for a company car and carrying passengers for work purposes.

    If you’re unsure of what qualifies, send an email to one of our tax refund experts and they’ll help you out.
