You deduct the fuel of your utility vehicle based on its professional use.
The fact that your vehicle is a utility vehicle does not automatically allow you to deduct the fuel 100%!

You can deduct the fuel fiscally at 100% if its use is only professional. One way to prove it, in the eyes of a curious controller, is to have an alternative for private travel.

Similarly, you only get 100% VAT back on the fuel if you don’t use your utility vehicle outside of work – not even to fill the large trunk of a van with groceries for the month! In doubt? Note that our partner accountant indicated that 85% is otherwise an acceptable rate of VAT deductibility.
