View Full Version : New car and car loan

13-05-2008, 09:12 AM
Hi Guys,

I am really excited about collecting my new car on 24th May (Chrysler Voyager), what I need is some advice on, is it best to claim the Mileage Allowance or claim a proportion of the loan costs, insurance, road tax, fuel etc.

Also do you know the Inland Revenue rate for a diesal car?

Look forward to your advice.

Best Wishes

The 40p per mile is much better and easier to work out too!

If you claim for the car itself it then becomes a capital allowance of the business and is a nightmare to work out.

Good choice of car, I have one of them :D
