Scale Charges

Fuel scale charges are taxes against fuel provided for personal use in company cars. These charges are dependent upon the carbon dioxide, CO2 emissions band of the car. Paying a fuel scale charge allows you to recover the VAT on the fuel purchased by your business.

When you enter your fuel scale charge details, a set of journal entries are created and posted to the audit trail.

Tip: If you’re using a UK Flat rate VAT scheme, scales charges aren’t applicable.
