Advice and Assistance accounts and travel: flat mileage rate payable and parking charges

The mileage allowance of 40 pence per mile is applicable to solicitors, counsel and expert witnesses where appropriate.

In line with HM Revenue and Customs rules, mileage attracts VAT which forms part of the authorised expenditure.

You can also claim for reasonable parking charges providing that you produce a receipt of the charges incurred.
