You’ll be able to access a whole range of useful company car information online with GOV.UK, including vehicle tax bands for new or used cars, averaged fuel consumption, running costs, emissions data and alternative fuel vehicles (such as LPG, CNG, and electric)
Company car tax calculations are based on the list price of the car, its fuel type and CO2 emissions. You’ll only pay tax on 5% of the list price for the cleanest petrol car, but you’ll be taxed up to 37% on a diesel car emitting more than 204 g/km of CO2.
You can’t use online company car tax services if your employer is ‘payrolling’ your car benefits and expenses through your wages or salary or if you’re part of a company car sharing or ‘averaging’ scheme.
To use the service you’ll need your basic tax information plus your car’s list price (including VAT and any extra equipment) and CO2 emission information. You can obtain these details from the car manufacturer or your employer.
If you have a company car but also drive it when you're not working, you'll have to pay tax on it. That's because it's a benefit you receive from your employer. And although it isn't a direct monetary benefit, like your salary, it does have an indirect financial benefit.
