Take a morning to make an informed decision
A company car is a significant, emotive benefit for key employees, so getting it right is important from a financial point of view and for corporate morale.
This Company Car Seminar will highlight the options; the changes; ways to make cost savings and give you a real insight into helping your company make the right decisions for the fleet going forward


“If I have a Company Hybrid car, I won’t pay any tax, will I?”

“And they are cheaper to run, aren’t they, because there is no fuel cost?”

This seminar looks at both the coat and practical aspects of funding ‘Electric’ vehicles for business use.

Delegates receive real-life Cost Comparisons, actual Case Studies and insight to the future HMRC tax regime.

The LPG promotion in the early 2000’s came and went. It failed due to lack of fuelling points and filling the car boot with fuel tanks; severely reducing re-sale Residual Values.

‘Twin-Cabs’ were then held to be the solution to reduce drivers’ company car tax bills, but simply added very heavy cost burdens on their companies. Plus the impracticalities of using the vehicles for normal travel.

Then Diesel cars became popular and are now taxed heavily.

Today, we have the ‘Electrics’ promotion as a move by the fleet industry to preserve the dwindling Company car fleet market.

This subject is typified by a bewildering array of mnemonics, often grossly misleading claims, hyper-ventilated ‘information’ and an daunting array of potential options:-

  • PHEVS Petrol Hybrid Electric Vehicles
  • DHEVS Diesel Hybrid Electric Vehicles
  • Plug-Ins
  • 100% Electric Vehicles.

But, are ‘Electrics’ the Future?

What are the on-costs v potential tax savings? Are there any?

Which option should we look at?

Save £10,000 per driver
A Four Part Process
The design and introduction of a Car Allowance Scheme should be handled in a logical process and must be managed from start to finish.
Under take financial analysis of the current fleet and drivers; evaluate options and fleet savings for the company . Typical fleet savings average more than £3000 per driver over 3 years.
Discuss the findings and select a policy to determine the way forward and achieve potential savings. Agree rules and procedures including parameters for “safe and healthy” motoring.
Launch the changes:
  • Employee communications drafted
  • Employee briefing
  • Driver consultation and support
  • Fleet disposal / reconfiguration
  • Transfer to new scheme
Salary Sacrifice

“My car-salesman says I should fund my Company car through Salary Sacrifice.”

Is he right?

Is Salary Sacrifice a key solution to the Company Car dilemma?

The fleet industry would have us think so.

But without showing us the whole picture.

Delegates to this seminar will have the opportunity to go through a full, worked example of how Salary Sacrifice works.

  • Does it work for existing Company Car drivers?
  • How does it work for New Starters?
  • What is the impact on Recruitment?
  • What does it cost? Save?
  • What are the Rules?
  • What is the rate of take-up?
  • What is the current HMRC position?

Delegates can discuss the legal, tax and practical aspects of Salary Sacrifice and walk through a Case Study.
