Approved Mileage Allowance Payments (AMAPs)

AMAP stands for Approved Mileage Allowance Payments. These are payments made to employees for the use of their own vehicle – or grey fleet. The allowances are designed to include fuel, insurance, servicing and maintenance.

Unless the employee is reimbursed at a rate higher than the appropriate Approved Mileage Allowance Payments (AMAPs), the payments do not need to be reported on the employees P11D. If the employer pays less than these rates, it is possible for the employee to claim income tax relief for the shortfall.
Rates of up to 5p per mile, per passenger, are also tax and NICs free when paid for the carriage of fellow employees on the same business trip.
