EV Salary Sacrifice FAQ

Simply put, the electric car salary sacrifice is a scheme that employers can implement within their company. It allows employees to sacrifice some of their salary to pay for the lease of a brand-new electric vehicle. We like to think of it more as a benefits scheme than a sacrifice - as both the employer and employees have so much to gain.

The process couldn’t be simpler. Employers just need to sign up to the scheme, and then eligible employees can choose an electric car to lease - with absolutely no upfront cost. They can then expect big tax and national insurance savings to be made. It’s a no brainer.

Thanks to the extremely low Benefit-in-Kind tax rates set by the UK Government, employees can be rest assured they won’t surpass 5% until at least 2028. This makes all EVs extremely attractive compared to petrol and diesel vehicles which attract a significantly high benefit-in-kind tax rate. Savings vary depending on the choice of EV and the income tax bracket of the employee but savings can be in the 20% to 60% range.

Absolutely! The benefits of a salary sacrifice car scheme are extensive - all of which apply to you (the employer), your employees and of course, the environment. It’s a scheme created specifically to put our people and planet first. If you want to find out more about how it can help your business thrive, our friendly team can happily advise you on the next steps.

We’d struggle to tell you of any disadvantages as such, but we do know it’s a concern for employers if the scheme doesn’t quite take off as they’d hoped. But don’t worry - we have a Driver-Centric approach that ensures employees feel truly inspired to try an electric car. Trust us, once the EV switch is made, they won’t want to go back.
