Tusker launches 100th salary sacrifice car scheme

Tusker has announced that its 100th scheme has now gone live with a scheme for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, which has some 6,165 eligible employees.

Tusker’s salary sacrifice car solution, SalarySacrifice4Cars (SS4C), is used by organisations in both private and public sectors throughout the UK to provide access to brand new cars for employees who would not normally qualify to receive a company car via a salary sacrifice arrangement.

The SS4C scheme is expected to deliver substantial cost savings to The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, and is available for all their permanently contracted employees.

Tony Stanyard (pictured), head of procurement, said: “We originally implemented the car salary sacrifice scheme to deliver cost savings to the Trust, whilst providing staff with a car leasing scheme that was flexible and designed to meet their motoring needs.

“We selected Tusker as our service provider following evaluation of a number of providers on the Health Trust Europe Framework and have worked hard with them to get the right scheme for our staff. We wanted to ensure that our employees have access to a safe, well maintained and fully insured new car.”

Stanyard continued: “The feedback from our colleagues has been very positive, citing that the website is user friendly and makes the selection of the vehicle easy, tailoring the car to their needs.

“From a Trust perspective, implementing the car salary sacrifice scheme has been relatively simple, with most of the work being completed electronically.

“The initial levels of interest have been very encouraging and we look forward to a continuing positive relationship with Tusker as the roll-out of the scheme continues,” he said.

Tusker ceo, David Hosking, said: “I’m delighted we’ve now launched our 100th scheme and still have many more at implementation stage.

“When we launched SS4C around three years ago, although we knew it would be popular, I don’t think that we had any idea of the true success it was going to become.

“One of the secrets of that success is the scheme’s simplicity and the savings both employee and employer can make.  SS4C offers all employees a tax efficient car, allied to fixed cost, worry-free motoring at very attractive rates, and we make the system very straightforward for them to use and understand.”
