VAT on mileage claims

These rates have just changed. The new rates can be found by following this link.

Multiply the relevant mileage rate by 1/6 to arrive at the amount of VAT you can reclaim.

At the lowest rate of 15p a mile, this would be a total claim of:

  • 16,000 miles x 15p a mile = £2,400
  • VAT claim £2,400 x 1/6th = £400

You need to obtain VAT petrol receipts to support the claim. This means getting a fuel receipt every time you fill up.
