Each month they report their business miles (calculated at less than the MAP) and the company calculate their personal mileage and deduct from their payroll Employee B has a personal car, receives a monthly car allowance payment and uses their own funds to purchase fuel. Each month they report their business miles (calculated at less than the MAP) and the company reimburse the employee their business mileage through their payroll Can both employees claim the Mileage alowance relief (MAR).

Thanks for your reply The two examples I have used above are both personal car owners The difference is that one has a company fuel card and reimburses the company any private mileage and the other driver uses his own funds to purchase fuel and reclaims business mileage Does this make a difference whether they can claim MAR or not please?

Hi,
 
They would still be able to claim as the MAR is for the cost of owning and running the vehicle.
