Tax Benefits of Electric Company Cars

The latest tax rules introduced by the government mean that switching to an electric company car is no longer just about reducing the climate impact, but provides a significant tax benefits for both employer and employee. From April 2021, fully electric company cars attract a Benefit in Kind rate of just 1%, rising to 2% from April 2022. This means, a Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus with a purchase price of £80,000 would have a benefit rate of just 1% in 2021-22, equating to an annual taxable benefit of just £800.
