If the new T&S changes come in, will it change the playing field for a company vehicle?

Accountant has always advised me to claim the 45ppm for business travel. If I can't do that, it might be worth buying a Double Cab or Van, paying the BIK for vehicle and free fuel and then every journey has tax advantages???

It's not free fuel...

So a van is a work vehicle.

And a VW camper van is a van.

And you can fit a 911 6 cylinder in a T1/T3...

The search below has a couple of threads where company vehicles after T&S have been discussed. Might find something useful there

HMRC define it as free fuel, i appreciate it is not free. Just means private mileage included.

Double Cab is no longer classed as a van.

Google or your Accountant is your friend here. This is not new.

Not hard to put a few seconds in and find out.

Why don't you put a modicum of effort in and try and find it yourself?

EIM23150 - Car benefit: double cab pick ups (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/eimanual/eim23150.htm)

Northernladuk. Wow, you really are unfriendly.

The link does not state that Double Cabs are no longer vans. It says it depends on a number of factors. However, crucially it does state that:


"Under this measure, a double cab pick-up that has a payload of 1 tonne (1,000kg) or more is accepted as a van for benefits purposes"

Pretty clear to me that a Double Cab can still be classed as a van - which I already knew.

So unsubstantiated one-liners that "a double cab is no longer a van" are unhelpful, inaccurate and just plainly antagonistic.

But I won't bring myself down to the same level - I think the majority of people on here are actually genuinely helpful and friendly.

Sorry you are right. That was a little harsh. This article has some interesting comments about use and outcome

Personally, I don't have the time or inclination do the research for you. I'm not being antagonistic, but this has been done to death previously.

Buy one, try it on?

A van capable of shifting a tonne of Bull shit would be a useful asset for my business.
