Save money on motoring

The cost of motoring has risen considerably, particularly in view of recent increases in fuel prices. Despite this, the company car remains an important part of the remuneration package for many employees.

However, did you know that tax and NIC costs mean that your company car may not be the most tax-efficient option for either the employer or the employee?

At one time company vans were an interesting option because the annual benefit-in-kind tax charge was a maximum of £200 (including fuel). However, with effect from 6 April 2007 this maximum has risen to £1,200 plus up to £200 for fuel!

You may find that you are better off paying employees for business mileage in their own vehicles, at the statutory mileage rates.

We can offer you advice on the costs involved, and make suggestions as to where you could make savings.
