Here at Amber Vehicle Solutions, we have many great electric car business lease deals, and quite often we are asked about company electric car tax and how it is calculated.
Company car tax is the name given to the tax that is placed on the “benefit in kind” (BiK) that an employee receives through the provision of a car for their personal use.
This means that when an employee receives a car from their employer to use for both business and personal use then they will have to pay some tax on the benefit that they receive for this. HM Treasury calculates how much benefit they receive based on the Cars P11D value compare to just receiving an equivalent amount in pre-income tax pay.
The P11D value is comprised of:
And then a BiK tax rate is set on top of this.

This means that BiK represents a great way for the UK Government to encourage the adoption of EV as they are the lowest emitting vehicle.
In July this year, HM Treasury announced their intent to strongly
An example of BiK tax shows that at the moment BiK rate on an EV with 0 g/km C02 emissions at the moment is 16% but after the change in tax next year, this will drop to 0% then rise to 1% in 2021 and 2% in 2022 – a big drop indeed.
