Francesca was an office worker whose employer was based in Leeds. As part of her job role, she needed to travel to visit clients at their offices. Her employer reimbursed her 0.25p per mile to cover the cost of her fuel. HMRC however, allows you to claim business mileage tax relief for the wear and tear of your vehicle, as well as fuel used. The total amount of tax relief available is 0.45p per mile. As Francesca's employer was not reimbursing her the full amount, she was able to make a claim.
Throughout the course of the year, Francesca had travelled 10,000 miles and had been reimbursed £2,500 by her employer. Francesca contacted Claim Back Tax and was allocated an experienced refund manager who specialises in business mileage and calculated that she was able to reclaim an additional tax relief to the sum of £2,000. What's more, she had never claimed mileage tax before, her refund manager was able to backdate her claim to 2015. All the necessary paperwork was completed and submitted directly to HMRC by Claim Back Tax.
After 8 weeks Francesca successfully reclaimed £1,600.
Total refund = £1,600
