VAT and Commercial Vehicles

A business is able to reclaim the VAT paid for a commercial vehicle if it is used purely for business purposes. If a company employee uses the vehicle for any personal mileage – e.g. commuting to and from work – then the amount of VAT you reclaim should be adjusted. The NENE UT90 is registered with the DVLA from new as an N1 Commercial Vehicle on the V5. It does not have rear seats or seat belts so cannot be used for carrying passengers. The Department for Transport define this category as “Vehicles designed and constructed for the carriage of goods and having a maximum mass not exceeding 3.5 tonnes”. For more information about VAT on commercial vehicles please see the HMRC website.

Company Car Tax

An employee using a ‘van’ for work is liable only for a flat rate ‘benefit-in-kind’ consideration for their income take. Whereas calculating the personal tax liability a standard car involves a combination of purchase price, CO2 emissions and also value of any extras fitted, driving a van for work makes you liable for a much reduced benefit in kind tax level of £3,230 per year. So a person paying 20% tax this equates to £646 per year, or £1,292 for those paying 40% income tax. Depending on your circumstances this could mean a saving of over £400 every month. It is always advisable to discuss VAT and benefit-in-kind taxation for commercial vehicles with your accountant before making any assumptions.

Vehicle Excise Duty

Annual car tax, or VED, for all N1 commercials is a flat rate £240 per year.
