Questions from our Forum – 29/08/11Friday, August 26th, 2011
Each week we receive a number of payroll questions on our forum, and here are this week’s batch. Can you help with any answers?
I would like to know how other organisations pay part miles through payroll as I want to update our procedures as it does not mention paying part miles or not paying part miles!
Currently our mileage claim forms allow part miles to be put on the form and the totals rounded up or down when paid. (The payroll software that we use only allows complete miles.)
We pay passenger miles when appropriate of 5 pence per mile. This is always rounded down to the nearest 5 pence as I believe that they can only claim 5 pence per whole mile.
Example of a section from current form:
No of TOTAL
Passengers Business UP TO 1,000 miles Passenger
miles to Pence per Mile Pence per Mile
claim 0.73 0.05
1 10.1 7.37 0.51
1 10.6 7.74 0.53
TOTALS 20.7 15.111 1.035
TOTAL PAID 21 miles £15.33 £1.00
Any advice or pointers welcome.
