The Miles Monitor app records mileage allowing you to produce essential fleet management information- by drivers and/or vehicle. Use the customised reports to give you better visibility over your entire fleet’s performance.
Fuel card information and filling station mileages are not considered robust enough under revenue guidelines. Miles Monitor offers additional information and the security of knowing you comply with all HMRC reporting obligations.
The HMRC definition of a business mile is described in the HMRC Employee Travel booklet
We will only provide records to HMRC if asked as part of an audit and with your knowledge.

Your odometer reading helps us to understand total miles being driven by your vehicle. This helps the system calculate your private miles, as well as assisting with policy and planning and understanding if there more effective ways of delivering benefits to staff.
You need to complete your mileage on a monthly basis. We recommend you record your data on a daily basis – Miles Monitor is available 24 hours a day.
You should record the name of the client or account you’re visiting in the purpose field.
As long as you complete information in the boxes requested you’ll be compliant. It’s best practice to check your information each month to make sure it still applies to you and your vehicle.
Recording your mileage doesn’t affect your tax or NI position; this is based on your particular circumstances and will continue to be reported as normal.

If your phone can’t connect to a mobile network or WiFi signal your Miles Monitor app won’t be able to return information about postcodes or towns on your trip so will leave these fields blank. You’ll still be able to complete the ‘Purpose’ field.
Your trip can be saved, however it will be saved with blank ‘from’ and ‘to’ fields.
When you save a trip your Miles Monitor app will upload your trip information as soon as there is a valid internet or mobile phone connection.

Yes! Silvey Fleet provides recommendations for fleet electrification using data that been compiled through our Miles Monitor mobile app. Alternatively we can conduct an Electric Vehicle Suitability Assessment – looking at refuelling data and/or any information from GPS locators.
As part of your EVSA (Electric Vehicle Suitability Assessment) we will review the routes your drivers regular take. Once we know more about your business we can look at the locations of charging stations to recommend if an electric vehicle would have the range needed to complete specific journeys.
As part of our EVSA assessment we can also review the procurement and installation costs – plus look at how you could spread the costs or even take advantage of any tax benefits or incentives.
We will project how switching or adding EV’s to your fleet will be able to save the company money through less maintenance and lower tax, when compared with traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
Several UK cities including London and Bath have introduced congestion charges and Clean Air Zones. Whilst congestion charges are designed to limit the number of cars driving in the city, the Clean Air Zone has been designed to reduce air pollution in key areas.
Currently London levies both a Congestion Charge and a cost to enter the Ultra Low Emission Zone. Most vehicles have to pay the daily congestion charge – even electric and plug-in hybrids, discounts and exemptions must be applied for.
Other clean air zones include Bath and Birmingham with Portsmouth due to start from late 2021. Currently fully electric or hybrid electric cars are exempt from paying charges.
