Ostensibly, "Yes". typically £50 p.mth.
The drivers were paying for all the fuel recorded on private journeys. It was the private journeys that were ostensibly being recorded.
But HMRC are not accepting that the (private) mileage records were adequate. ('Should have recorded business journeys, etc..)
Assessments being made for P11D non-entries. 4 years = £44,000 - £49,000.
Our argument, then is:- "OK - so we want the 'contributions' offset against the Scale Charges. Either your Fuel Scale assessments or the facility to open up the P11Ds since 2008/09".
HMRC Tax Inspector says:- "Fuel Scale Charges are all or nothing. Cannot off set contributions."
Hopes this gives you the background to our question.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Thanks for that. It's what we already believed the situation to be.
In the evnet of failure to have the private records accepted, can you comment on opening up the last 4 years' P11Ds then to offset the (fuel) contributions against the Car Benefit Scale charges?
'Sorry - but I meant can WE go back and have the previous 4 years' P11Ds adjusted?
(or IS this what you meant?)
