You can claim the mileage rates and take off the amount that your employer pays you. You can see more information here:
Claim tax relief for your job expenses
Hi - I have just changed from a company car to a car cash allowance. I get a fuel card to pay for all my fuel but have to pay back for private mileage each month at the HRMC rates (currently 15p per mile). My business mileage is paid for by the fuel card but I do not receive anything for wear and tear of my vehicle. Therefore can I claim any tax allowance for this? My employer is paying for the cost of the fuel but nowhere near 45p for the first 10,000 business miles and 25p thereafter. I don't currently complete self assessment but would be happy to do so if it means I can claim for this (I do circa 15,000 business miles per year). If I can claim how do I do so and how would I calculate how much the company have paid for business miles - would I use HRMC rates?
