Avoiding an unexpected car benefit

Share Button

Where a husband and wife work for the same company and have a company car, tax can be saved by providing it as a benefit-in-kind to whichever one is taxed at the lower rate. However, if the lower earner is paid less £8,500 per year (including the car benefit), increase their pay to take them over this.  If you don't then the higher paid spouse will be taxed on it.
