Company car tax has been based on a car's list price and CO2 emission figure since April 2002.
As time has passed the tax bands have tightened, aligning themselves with lower CO2 emissions as the country become more environmentally focussed. Now significant savings for fleets can be made by opting for a fleet vehicle with low CO2 emissions.
The total cost of company car tax to be paid is a combination of the following three things;
Multiply the P11D value of the car by the benefit-in-kind percentage that it's subject to based on its CO2 output. This is the proportion of the car's value that you'll be taxed on based on your personal income tax band, so multiply that by 20%, 40% or 50% as appropriate in relation to your salary band.
