How do I add or change mileage rates?
You can add multiple mileage rates and edit these in System Settings in the 'Purchases' section:
You may choose to use multiple mileage rates, either for:
- types of postholders (voluntary, employed, passenger);
- or for types of transport (cycling, car).
You can also specify a tiered rate based on the total business mileage claimed. For example, in accordance with HMRC guidance, you may have 1 rate for the first 10,000 miles and then a reduced rate thereafter.
Once a mileage rate has been used for a claim, it can no longer be deleted. It needs to remain as part of the audit trail for the system.
However, if you want to adjust your rate and use a different setup going forward, you can deactivate the rate using the 'X' symbol to the right of the settings table.
