Revenue updates mileage rates
The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform has issued a new schedule of Civil Service Mileage Rates which apply with effect from 1st April 2017.
Some of the key changes are as follows:
1. An increase in the number of distance bands from two to four.
2. A lower mileage rate for the first 1,500km.
3. An increased mileage rate for the 1,501km to 5,500km band.
4. More favourable compensation rates for cars with lower engine sizes and emissions.
Mileage claims for the period 1st January 2017 to 31st March 2017 must be based on the previous rates but mileage incurred during this period will count towards total mileage for the year under the new rates.
Revenue’s Website and Manuals will be updated shortly to reflect these changes.
