Hi all, hope you cen help me please....
I've got a client who is a director in a large company and would like to add business mileage to his SA.
He's got a fuel card which he uses for both personal and business use, hence they deduct £70 from his GROSS salary every month to contribute to personal use. But his petrol use is on his P11D. Hope this makes sense.
He's got an excel sheet with business and personal mileage which is fine.
This is what his payroll dept said:
"Please note that the cost of your private fuel used in 2015/2016 has been included on your P11d.
The reason for this is that whilst you have had £70 per month deducted through payroll as a fixed contribution, this has been deducted from your gross salary rather than from net salary with the result that no tax has been deducted in the year from the private fuel used.
You should continue to make a claim for use of your private car for business purposes via the SA103 Tax Return in the normal manner."
payroll also said: Don’t forget to mention you get a £70 deduction for the private element
So...do I just enter P11d info in SA as it's given and add business mileage x 45p to his SA as an expense or do I need to do anything with his whole £70 reduction etc...???
many thanks in advance
