A guide to company car tax for drivers
Company car tax is designed to do two things. Firstly, to reflect the benefit of you having an employer-provided car for your private use. And secondly, to encourage you to choose a more environmentally-friendly vehicle.
With road transport responsible for about 20% of all emissions, the Government is committed to encouraging drivers to choose greener vehicles. That’s why the amount of company car tax you have to pay is directly related to the amount of CO2 produced by your car (measured in grams per kilometre – g/km).
For a quick way to discover how much you will have to pay, go to our company car tax calculator.
In addition, all Ford vehicles are listed with their official emissions banding using our colour coded chart.
How company car tax works
You pay company car tax on a percentage of the P11D value of your car.
The P11D value is the manufacturer’s list price, plus VAT, delivery, number plates and any optional extras.
The percentage of the P11D value you pay tax on is decided by the CO2 emissions of your car and fuel type. To find your emissions figure, you can either look at the car's vehicle registration certificate, or use an official guide, available from the Vehicle Certification Agency (www.vca.gov.uk).
