Thread: Company director car allowance

    Company director car allowance

    Just wondering if anyone knows what the average value per month a company director would get in the construction industry?

    I guess it would depend on the size of the company and responsibilities etc but a rough idea would do if poss. Or maybe a percentage of the annual salary so it goes up as the salary increases,

    Not many go for company cars nowadays as the tax you pay is really high, its more common to buy the car yourself and then charge a mileage to teh company.
    Only other way is if the car is a pool car in which case no tax is payable

    Sorry I don't mean an actual company car, but a sum paid as part of a salary package per month/annum instead, which would allow them to either buy a car outright or get a lease hire, etc,

    ...there are a LOT of variables (company size/profitability/etc), but in the region of 800-900/month for a Director I'd have thought.

    A lot of people think a company car is 'free' - it isn't, it is a benefit-in-kind and anyone considering a co car if they haven't had one before needs to be fully aware of their personal tax liability arising out of taking this benefit. Monthly car allowance + mileage is an option, but bear in mind that HMRC approved mileage rates have a differential (downwards!) after the first 10,000 miles in a tax year.

    A pool car CAN'T be used as anything other than exactly that, ie a pool car. HMRC have a very specific and strict set of guidelines re what constitutes a pool car, and when it's use would result in it being treated as a co car - with the tax implications that brings.

    Agree that somewhere between 700 and 1200 per month would be a director level car allowance

    Based on my experiences somewhere between 400-800/month with the company covering insurance and then either you claiming the 0.45 per mile from company or claiming it on tax return.
