Never heard of this, particularly as company cars attract personal tax!

Never heard of this either... I suppose the company will decide which is the cheapest option..whether to pay your expenses for "real" business mileage or to lease/buy a car..

No they don't.

Is that ok?

I saved a URL off a LinkedIn ad the other day that was about this. I'll post it here on Monday, once I'm back in the office.

Sorry Ducky, I couldn't find the link in my bookmarks, but I did find this searching Google. Hope it helps!

Did you get any further with this? I'm in the same position signed a contract with occasional travel, doing over 10,000business miles which seems excessive without a company car or allowance.

Presumably you get recompensed for the mileage though.....I was always happy at 45p a mile, seemed quite profitable for motorway journeys. Having said that, I also got an additional 4K allowance for own car use.

Yes you should get either a company car or an allowance for using your own car.

If you were doing 10,000 miles a year, paying out of your own pocket and not getting anything back for it then that is quite wrong.

The employer does not have to give you a car nor pay anything towards your mileage allowance unless agreed within your contract.

However if they do not pay you anything and you run a private car , you should be able to claim up to 45 p per mile back from any tax paid to HMRC (up to 10,000 miles , reduces to 25 p per mile over 10,000)

It is called mileage allowance relief.
