Civil Service Mileage Rates

Where employees use their own private cars or motorcycles for business purposes, reimbursement in respect of allowable motoring expenses can be effected by way of flat-rate mileage allowances.

There are two types of mileage allowance schemes which are acceptable for tax purposes if an employee bears all the motoring expenses:

  • The prevailing schedule of Civil Service rates; or 

  • Any other schedule with rates not greater than the Civil Service rates

 

Motor Travel Rates - Effective from 1st April 2017

 

 

Reduced Motor Travel Rates per kilometre

 

 

The reduced rates are payable to Civil Service employees who undertake a journey associated with their job but not solely related to the performance of their duties, such as: 

 

  • Attendance at confined promotion competitions

  • Attendance at approved courses of education

  • Attendance at courses or conferences

  • Return visits home at weekends during a period of temporary transfer

 

The Motor Travel Rates for motorcycles and bicycles are as follows:


Bicycle: 8 cent
 per km
