Some facts

  • If the employee uses his own vehicle for business journeys, the employer can reimburse the car usage expenses. The Mileage Allowance Payments (MAP) is the amount that can be paid tax free.
  • The amount of money, which can be paid depends on distance traveled strictly for business purpose.
  • The per-mile rate depends on vehicle's type. Also, this rate is decreased after 10,000 miles distance reached within single tax year for cars and vans.
  • Current (2016/2017 and 2017/2018 tax years) Mileage Allowance Payment (MAP) rates are summarized below:
    • cars and vans: 45p (25p after 10,000 miles threshold reached)
    • motorbikes: 24p
    • bikes: 20p
  • ⓘ Example: Employee traveled 12,000 business miles. Mileage Allowance Payment is:
    MAP=10,000×45p+2,000×25p=5000GBPMAP = 10,000 × 45p + 2,000 × 25p = 5000 GBP
