Company Car Tax Table – 2018/19 to 2020/21

Remember to add an extra 4% for any diesel vehicle that doesn't meet the new RDE2 test standards

Company cars like many business benefits are taxed, this is called Benefit-In-Kind (BIK) Tax. As company cars are an additional taxable benefit they fall outside of your standard National Insurance tax contributions. The amount of company car tax that you will pay is based on a range of factors, including annual earnings, the cost of the car and the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted.

Calculating Company Car Tax

Every car has a BIK percentage band. This is based on CO2 emissions, and a P11D value, which is the list price, including extras and VAT but without the first-year registration fee and vehicle tax.

Using the table below, multiple the P11D value of the vehicle by the car (BIK) tax band percentage rate then multiply that figure by your marginal rate of tax (20% or 40%).

ExampleAudi A3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Sport 190ps

Co2 Emissions of 129 equates to a Taxable Percentage of 26%

Multiple £23,400 by 26% (Taxable Percentage) to calculate the payable BIK = £6,941

Then multiple £6,941  by your tax band:

Tax payable 20%: £1,388

Tax payable 40%: £2,776

Should the CO2 emissions of your company car fall between CO2 bandings, simply round the number down to work out the company car tax band that applies.

The Diesel supplement

Remember to add an extra 4% below to the taxable percentage of the p11D value for any diesel vehicle that doesn’t meet the new RDE2 test standards (There are currently no vehicles that meet this standard).
