We have reached a fork in the road for company cars. Only you know if your employees are happy paying tax on 2, 3 or more times the employer’s cost of providing a company car. After all, 1 in 6 people still pay tax on private fuel provided for a company car; despite effective tax rates of up to 400%+.

IF you are not happy with that kind of tax/NIC bill, then the options are:

switch to a car that emits less than 51g/km of CO2 (electric and plug in electric hybrids), or switch to cash (with appropriate risk mitigation).

We hosted a 30 minute webinar to run through why this is and to talk about these options in more detail. We explain how savings to both employee and employer can be dramatic.
