Cycling Mileage Allowance

Could anyone let me know what mileage allowance you receive for cycling? My PCT's current rate is 10p per mile

Mine is 10p as well. In AfC it says that 10p per mile is the minimum rate, but that employers can pay up to 20p per mile at their own discretion as that is the maximum allowed by HMRC. I do not know whether any do pay more than 10p.

Mind you my foundation trust is talking about scrapping the differential mileage rates for cars according to cc (as well as the lease scheme) and replacing it with one standard rate. I know its just to save costs but I do think that is fair enough and should promote the use of less poluting cars for NHS transportation needs. Only exception IMO is if there are disability rights issues, as a person may have need of a larger vehicle due to mobility issues.

I think the 20p HMRC limit is the tax free limit, and wouldn't stop organisations paying higher, in fact I seem to remember on the old SPOKES website there was a little bit of research on mileage rates paid and there was significant variation with some paying well in excess of the 10p minimum.

 This document has some explination of proposed changes to milage rates http://www.sdu.nhs.uk/documents/Mileage_Rates_Explained.pdf

and this one says that if differentiated mileage rates are maintaied then the highes rate should be paid for low carbon options like cycling
