HMRC penalties for inaccurately claiming business mileage

It is estimated that up to 60% of business drivers overestimate their business fuel claims, which accounts for a potentially large sum of overpayments going through your business each month.

HMRC can levy a fine on a business of up to £3,000 per annum per employee for an incorrect tax return.

  •  A construction company in the West Midlands fined £128,000 for discrepancies in relation to 10 vehicles.

  • A transport company fined £42,000 for irregularities relating to 10 vehicles.

  • A business fined more than £28,000 in relation to mileage errors associated with two company cars.

  • A company fined £21,875 also relating to inadequate mileage reporting relating to two company cars.
