RUNNING COSTS

If you’re looking for the most cost-effective company car, don’t forget the role that fuel economy should play in your decision.

A company car driver will often focus only on the cost of benefit-in-kind taxation. However, this might lead to a higher overall cost when private fuel costs are taken into account.

The below example compares a petrol and a diesel model with the same P11D value.

Although the petrol car offers lower benefit-in-kind taxation, when we consider the cost of private mileage, diesel is the lower cost option.
 

          Petrol               Diesel
P11D         £25,000            £25,000
CO2 (g/km)          115            103 
BiK 2019/20 tax year          27%            28%
BiK 2020/21 tax year         28%           29%   
Total BiK tax (20% taxpayer)         £4,150           £4,300
MPG (Combined)          44.5           53.3
Annual private mileage         7,500           7,500
Fuel price / litre (p)         125.9           133.9
Total fuel cost         £2,894           £2,569
Total cost         £7,044           £6,869
