VAT Implications of Employee Mileage Claims
Note that where employers reimburse their employees 45p per mile for using their own cars they are able to reclaim input VAT based on the amounts shown in the table.
In the case of a 1600cc diesel car that would be 1.5 pence per mile. (9p x 20/120). Such a claim needs to be supported by a receipt from the filling station.
