I am applying for a job which states I have to have access to a car for work purposes and be prepared to insure it appropriately. This is not a well paid job (£9K pa approximately). Is this the sort of thing where they would reimburse me additional insurance costs and give me mileage costs?
Of course, I am going to ring them to find out but I wondered what common practice was for this sort of thing. I turned down a job a few years back (also badly paid ) because they hadn't thought all this through. I should have pursued it with the organisation as I think the interviewer was badly briefed (not by all accounts a happy place to work so glad I didn't go there )
My insurance also did increase when adding work usage (self emplyed) Suspect they would give a mileage cost which is expected to contribute to petrol + insurance + additional wear and tear. I think 40p is max allowed under IR, but may be out of date there
They probably wouldn't reimburse additional insurance costs but will pay you probably 40p a mile for business miles which is supposed to take into account wear and tear and insurance as well as just petrol.
l get 40p/mile for business miles only (not to & from office). Have to have cover for using car for work, not just for commuting but I don't think it costs any more & I would have to pay any extra anyway, if it did.
