Everything you need to know about company car tax, benefit in kind (BIK) and car allowances. The UK company car tax system can be very confusing, in this video I explain how company car tax works, show how to calculate the benefit in kind tax and also discuss the tax differences between a company car vs car allowance.

The Benefit in Kind is calculated by taking the vehicle’s P11D value (list price + optional extras, VAT & delivery) and multiplying it by the BIK % (which is based on CO2 emissions and fuel type).

At the moment the most tax-efficient company cars are electric vehicles (EV's) such as Tesla's as the benefit in kind on these is currently 0% for the tax year 2020/2021. This will increase by 1% a year for the next 2 years, however, the BIK on these vehicles will remain very low.

Employees may be offered a car allowance as an alternative to a company car. This is subject to Income Tax & National Insurance instead of BIK Tax.

If you own a LTD business and are considering a company car, I would highly recommend avoiding high emission cars. As both the owner and employee of the business you will face double taxation - BIK tax as an employee and Class 1A National Insurance as the employer.

Alternatively, many business owners choose to take advantage of (Mileage Allowance Payments) instead of a company car as this allows you to charge the business 45p per business mile for the first 10,000 miles and 25p per mile for anything above this. This payment is tax-free, isn't subject to benefit in kind and the business can offset it against corporation tax.

Also, as a business owner, it should be possible to get a car lease tax deduction on 100% of the vehicle rental providing the CO2 of the vehicle is below the LLR (Lease Rental Restriction) threshold. If it is above this then only 85% is available to offset against corporation tax. The LRR is currently 110g/km in 2020/21 but drops to 55g/km from April 2021.

If your business is VAT registered then it should be possible to reclaim 50% of the VAT (if the vehicle has any personal use, including commuting) or 100% if the vehicle is strictly business usage.

These are the links I mentioned in the video:
• P11D, CO2 and BIK Search: comcar.co.uk/companycar/tax/s...
• Company Car Benefit in Kind Thresholds: www.fleetnews.co.uk/fleet-faq...

Are you considering a company car such as a Tesla or other zero-emission EV - let me know in the comments!

A great video and really helpful. I'm thinking of buying an electric estate car to use for work. As a vat registered limited company, am I correct in thinking I can claim 50% of the vat back and put the full value of the car against corporation tax?

Great video Darren, A quick question about FYA for Electric Vehicles....If you claim a 100% FYA can you then claim a Writing Down Allowance on the vehicle in subsequent years? If so, how do you work out the 2nd year value?

As a limited company with only one employee. ( myself) What is the best way to have a vehicle, is it to buy outright and use it as a depreciating asset , is it to lease ? Bearing in mind that working construction and it's always a bit bit iffy with recession on the way.

Great video! If one is a director of a LTD, but does not draw a salary, what is the best option to get a car using the funds in the company? I've never drawn a salary as we started just before Covid and I can't afford to pay myself! It would be personal and business use and doesn't have to be an EV. Thanks!

You mention the potential savings on a car through VAT, but what about VAT when you come to sell it? (In my case I don't wish to lease).

I'm currently trying to get my head around this whole process right now. I have a £485 cash allowance (gross) or £320 if I choose a company lease. The car I am looking at has a high BIK % and the cost is £311 per month. Does the £320 allowance cover this or am I still going to pay in additional tax. I think I know the answer but clarification would be appreciated 🙂

So those calculations at the end: that’s the tax you’d pay, on top of the lease/payments for the car on a monthly basis? So as an example if I were to lease an EV car, through a ltd company for, say, £300pcm I would pay £0 tax on top, but, ~£115 tax a month on top of regular car payments of similar value?

As an fba seller can I get an electric company car and pay no bik tax? Also as you know with fba the use of the car for the biz would be really low. So can I still get one and claim 50% VAT?
