Default Any accountants answer a quick query re: claiming mileage, please?

Had a change in circumstances at work and I need to know where it leaves me. PM me if you can help I'm sure it will be an easy answer for someone in the know.

Thanks in advance

Yeah HRMC increased it for 2012 onwards I believe, I've been stuck with claiming 40p from the company though and will need to claim the other 5p from HMRC as our company did not get the memo lol.

As a side issue, am I right in thinking this money the company pay out is claimed against their tax? So they aren't actually "paying" it?

The HMRC figure is 0.45 per mile for first 10,000, then 0.25 per mile.

If a company decides to pay less than this then that is upto them. If they pay higher it just gets complicated as you are into P11D benefits and HMRC are into all your tax affairs and so just gets messy and not worth the aggro IMO.

The way I read you have been paid 0.40 per mile by your company. You cannot claim the difference of 0.05 off HMRC as it's nothing to do with them. Unless you are working for HMRC and they under paid you?

Other people at the company have claimed the 5p sucessfully, and it has come off their tax band for the next year.

Ahh, so you are not receiving 5p per mile benefit. Your alloawance is been altered and you get the incremental tax suffered? So max benefit would be 0.05 x 10,000 miles at 40% tax rate = 200. Pays for a few beers

You can claim it ok
My company does not pay staff the full mileage allowance, employees get the difference from the tax man.

Well seeing as no-one has pm'd i'll elaborate as much as I am willing to in public.

My question relates to them not paying you any mileage, i understand claiming the difference should go through ok.

Scenario is point of employment is office A. Asked to go to office B a couple of times a week to help out, given a bit of extra salary for my troubles (and was long overdue a payrise anyway). This is on payslip as only an increase in basic salary. Tried to claim mileage from A to B got told the money was to cover that and I can't claim it.

It is my understanding that i could claim this mileage back from HMRC against my tax, but without them showing my mileage on payslip - as they do for the stuff they actually want to pay - how do I go about that? I think they are being a bit short sighted in that they actually get this amount reduced from their tax?

Previous company I worked at did this properly.

Normal Office is A. So your normal commutem home to work is x miles. So your claim to office B would miles home to B less your normal x miles. That is the difference you are out of pocket. Such a claim to HMRC might work if you are able to claim the 0.05?
