Here’s a quick example of how fully electric vehicles can now radically reduce your fleet costs:
Electric vehicles have much lower running costs than traditional cars and vans. The fuel cost of a petrol car is 12-13p per mile, according to the RAC Foundation, whereas it can be as low as 2-3p per mile in an all-electric car. Signing up to an EV-friendly energy tariff is the key.
In addition, electric vehicles also enjoy:
- Lower servicing and maintenance costs
- Zero or reduced road tax
- Exemptions to congestion charges
- No restrictions to ultra-low emission zones
- Various grants covering charging points and OTR prices
- Excellent first year capital allowances
When you put it all together, the whole life costs of an electric vehicle can be substantially lower than a traditional petrol or diesel car. We provide worked examples to show you where the savings can be achieved.
Ultra-Low Benefit in Kind (BiK) Tax
There are also some fantastic advantages for your staff if they opt for an electric car.
If an employee has a petrol or diesel company car at the moment, they will be paying a few hundred or even thousands of pounds in tax a year to HMRC for the benefit of having the car.
In a fully electric car in the 2021/22 tax year, your staff member would pay 1% Benefit in Kind tax. In 2022/23, it’s just 2% tax.
In other words, employees’ personal tax bills plummet if their company car is fully electric.
The second major benefit to staff applies if your company sets up a salary sacrifice scheme.
If an employee is not eligible for a company car, salary sacrifice allows them to take a vehicle with payments coming out of their gross pay before tax.
The savings can be as much as £250 a month for a 20% tax payer.
If your employee is a 40% tax payer, the savings are even greater. A vehicle lease that was going to be £500 a month, would actually cost about £240 instead via salary sacrifice.
