Approved Mileage Allowance Payments
Approved Mileage Allowance Payments (AMAP) are a way of easing the costs of your work travel. They only count if you're using your own vehicle, though. The AMAP rates are set by HMRC and help cover everything from oil and tyres to servicing and Vehicle Excise Duty, not just fuel costs. There are special rules for things like company cars and work vans. It's worth checking every so often to see if you're getting as much as you should. It's important to check your mileage regularly and to keep records of how far you're travelling for work each year.
