Need some help deciding which company car makes most financial sense for you? What Car?'s guide to company car tax is the place to start.

Running a company car is seen as major perk by the tax authorities, and as soon as the vehicle is used for personal reasons – including the daily commute – it is deemed to be a 'benefit in kind' (BIK) that can be taxed.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) sets a taxable value for every new car, based on its CO2 emissions. This figure is known as the 'P11D value' because it is the value shown for the vehicle on the P11D document that details additional benefits from your employer.

The P11D value is based on the car's list price – plus VAT, delivery and options costing £100 or more – as well as its CO2 emissions, so choosing the right car can help to reduce the amount of tax that you have to pay.
