Woman next to company car

When a company car or van or fuel for private use is made available to an employee, there is deemed to be a benefit in kind - which means the employee has to pay tax on it.

Private use includes employees' journeys between home and work, unless they're travelling to a temporary place of work.

As an employer, you'll need to work out the taxable value so you can report this to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The cash value of the car is added to the employee's salary and tax is then deducted from the final sum.
