Frequently asked questions

How does mileage reimbursement work?

When an employee uses their personal car or van for day-to-day business activities, they can claim back the cost without paying income tax.

Mileage reimbursement isn’t designed to cover commuting to and from work. It only covers journeys that employees are requested to make during work, specifically those with a business purpose.

Is mileage reimbursement mandatory for companies?

In short, no. In most countries there is no requirement by law to reimburse an employee’s mileage or other travel expenses. However, many companies do, as a matter of good practice.

Who sets the mileage reimbursement rates?

Although each country has its own standard mileage allowance, the rates can differ depending on each company and how much they choose to pay back their colleagues. Companies can also set their own mileage reimbursement policies.

Can companies reimburse a higher amount than the standard mileage rates?

Yes, companies can choose to reimburse a higher amount than the standard. However, this does come with its own rules and regulations.

For example, in the U.S. and UK, if they exceed the standard mileage rate, the reimbursement will count as regular wages and lose its tax benefits (if they go below the rate, employees in many countries can deduct their difference when filing their tax return).
