The Civil Service mileage and subsistence rates were revised with effect from 1 April 2017.
While business travel between 1 January 2017 and 31 March 2017 will not be affected by the introduction of these new rates, business travel from 1 January 2017 will, however, count towards aggregated mileage for the year.
