Van tax carrot for 4Work

MITSUBISHI has launched a new range of vehicles to attract user-chooser company car drivers looking to take advantage of tax breaks for running commercial vehicles.

The range, titled 4Work, is generally made up of passenger vehicles converted for commercial use. With the Inland Revenue recently clearing up confusion over such vehicles, all will qualify as vans for tax purposes.

This means drivers will pay benefit-in-kind tax on a flat benefit charge of £500, spelling an annual tax bill of £200 for a 40% tax-payer, and £110 a year for a 22% taxpayer.

Paul Williams, sales and marketing director, said: 'The 4Work brand is a natural expansion following the successful development of our L200 pick-up range.

'From selling about 1,000 units annually three years ago we have grown the business to somewhere around 7,000 sales this year.'

There are 22 models in the range, although Mitsubishi can do bespoke conversion for various business needs, and prices start at £10,995 for the Shogun Pinin 1.8 Classic Commercial, up to £27,271 for the Shogun 3.2TD DI-D Equippe Commercial auto.
