Fuel scale charges
Amendments to the VAT fuel scale charges for taxing private use of fuel. The HMRC document setting out detailed tables can be accessed here.
Who will be affected?
Any businesses which recover VAT on fuel used for private motoring.
The new scale charges are applicable from the start of a business's next prescribed accounting period beginning on or after 1 May 2009.
These annual amendments to the fuel scales charges were fully expected as they reflect the changes in fuel prices.
