Tips to help your mileage records meet HMRC guidelines

Many companies dread an HMRC audit.
When it comes to company mileage records, these fears are well-founded:

If HMRC uncovers poor record-keeping or private usage of business-paid fuel, it can trigger punishing charges.

Typical HMRC settlement costs for private fuel benefit average £3,500 per driver per year, dating back four years. For a fleet of 25 vehicles, that could lead to a settlement of £350k, plus penalties.

Yet with MileageCount, all journeys can be recorded precisely and automatically. Developed in conjunction with Big 4 accountancy expertise, it’s the most efficient way to save time, save money and save worry about HMRC audits.
