Mileage Allowance

The Mileage Allowance is a tax-free allowance for self-employed people who use their vehicle for work. You can use it if you drive for business in a car, van, or bike.

How much you can claim depends on how much you travel for your sole trader business:

  • for a car or van: 45p/mile, which goes down to 25p/mile for every mile after your first 10,000 miles
  • for a motorbike: 24p/mile, regardless of distance
  • for a bike: 20p/mile, also regardless of distance.

You can claim the Mileage Allowance through your annual Self Assessment tax return.
