Mileage Tax Relief
Can I claim a mileage tax rebate?

Mileage Tax Relief
How much tax can I claim back for my work mileage?
HMRC sets Approved Mileage Allowance Payment (AMAP) rates for travel to temporary workplaces (where you work for under 24 months on the trot). You can claim back:
- 45p per mile for the first 10,000 miles you travel in a year.
- 25p per mile after that.
My employer gives me something toward my work mileage costs. Can I still claim a tax refund?
Even if you’re getting something from your employer for your work mileage, you could still have tax to claim back. If you’re getting less than the AMAP rates say you should, you can claim back the difference as a mileage tax rebate. Or, there may be other work expenses you can claim for too.

Does it take a lot of paperwork to make a mileage tax rebate?
The more evidence you have to back up your claim, the better. Don’t worry, though. RIFT can help put all the information together to make sure you never miss out. We can even track down tricky details about employers, travel routes or workplaces that no longer exist!
It all starts with the RIFT Mileage Calculator, so give it a go to see what you could be owed.
How far back can I claim?
What if I haven't claimed my mileage tax rebate from previous years? Have I lost my money?
Not if you’re quick on your feet! You can reclaim the tax you’re owed from up to 4 years back, even if you’ve switched employers or gone self-employed in the meantime.
HMRC Tax Refunds
Is my work mileage the only thing I can claim a tax rebate for?
Not at all! Whenever you reach into your own pocket for the essential costs of your job, you could be owed some tax back. Upkeep and replacement of tools or uniforms, professional subscription fees and even the food you buy on-site can count toward your refund claim. Work mileage accounts for 75% of most tax rebate claims, so it’s really important to get that sorted. That’s what our Mileage Calculator’s all about. If you’re only claiming for your mileage, though, you could be missing out on a quarter of the refund you’re owed!
Get your tax refund rolling with the RIFT Mileage Calculator now. It only takes a few seconds to check what you’re owed, and the average refund comes to £2,500!
