New company car advisory fuel rates have been published to take effect from 1 September 2012. HMRC’s website states:

‘These rates apply to all journeys on or after 1 September 2012 until further notice. For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose. Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.’ 

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 September 2012 are:

Engine size                        Petrol                    LPG

1400cc or less                     15p                        10p

1401cc – 2000cc                  18p                        12p
