‘One issue is that since the fuel cards are so simple to administer, numerous drivers stick on to them indeed despite the fact that it is costing them money It’s a shape of comfort blanket Yet such drivers are unwittingly putting hundreds of pounds of their hard earned cash straightforwardly into the Chancellor’s coffers ‘

After the hikes, the driver of a Volvo S60 D5 2 4 liter diesel will see their yearly charge charge for free fuel rise £232 from £1,448 a year to £1,680 a year, in the event that they are a higher rate (40 per cent) taxpayer

Experts at the exchange magazine Armada News said that for such a driver to break indeed on the fuel card liven he would have to drive at minimum 21,368 private miles

The liven is a one-off allornothing conclusion which comes into impact – in full – the minute a card is utilized to pay for the exceptionally to start with drop of fuel

The driver is at that point quickly obligated for a entirety year’s tax On the off chance that they at that point need to dismiss the liven they have to reimburse their boss for each penny of fuel received

The Inland Income said last night: ‘It may come as a amaze to a few people, yet it is not a stealth tax

‘ The Chancellor to start with declared in 1998 that he was presenting a five year program of a 20 per penny increment above the pump price He was exceptionally open about it ‘

When inquired how drivers were gathered to keep track of each change from an declaration made four a long time ago, the representative said: ‘There is nothing vile about it ‘
