Tax Benefits of Electric Cars

The government has announced that there will be a zero P11d benefit for the drivers of electric cars from 2020/21. This is instead of the 2% scale charge that was in the Finance Act 2017 to apply for 2020/21. The legislation for the change will be in the 2020 Finance Bill and is proposed that the benefit will be 1% of list price in 2021/2 and then 2% in 2022/3. The zero taxable benefits will also apply to hybrid cars emitting no more than 50 grams of CO2 per kilometre with a range using its electric motor of at least 130 miles, but only for electric cars first registered on or after 6 April 2020. For those registered before 6 April 2020, the scale charge will be 2%. Rather confusingly there will be two different sets of scale charges from 2020/21. One set relating to those registered before 6 April 2020, and a new lower set of rates for those registered on or after 6 April 2020. Businesses are advised to wait until 6 April 2020 as the P11d scale charge for electric cars is currently 16% of the original list price for 2019/20.
