Renault set to reduce prices in January

Following the recent simplification of its car range, Renault has announced key model pricing with effect from 4th January 2011, including the new 20% VAT rate. The welcome news for both employers and business drivers, is that many of the best-sellers will be the same price, or in many cases, substantially less than today, by up to £2,000. As a result, the revised P11D prices will benefit employers through lower National Insurance contribution costs, while business drivers can enjoy reduced Benefit-In-Kind taxation. 

The table below outlines some of the key alterations for January 2011 best-sellers:
