Salary Sacrifice is a fantastic Employee benefit that enables Employee's to ‘sacrifice’ part of their salary in exchange for a brand new, company-leased car, at no additional cost to the Employer!
Salary Sacrifice is an employee benefit that allows employee's to ‘sacrifice’ some of their salary in return for a brand new, company leased car. Because the deduction comes out of the employee’s ‘gross’ salary, the Employee will pay reduced National Insurance and Income Tax while covering the total cost of the lease (meaning there is no cost to the business). This allows them to lease a brand new car and save money at the same time!
The employee will typically save around 30-50% on the lease cost of an electric car compared to leasing personally.
Monthly payments commence after you have taken delivery of your new vehicle.
Full maintenance and servicing is included with every lease car.
Your credit score is not affected as there are no credit checks for employees.
All cars are brand new and delivered direct from UK main dealers.
Additional, fixed fee fully comprehensive insurance is available.
A Home EV charger can be included as part of your salary sacrifice package.

Numerous employers compute pension contributions based on a "notional" or "reference salary" - the employee's salary prior to the deduction of any salary sacrifice. Consequently, the pension might remain unaffected by the salary sacrifice. However, this may not be the case with all pensions, and by reducing your Income Tax and National Insurance payments, your pension could be impacted. Therefore, it's crucial to obtain independent advice. Please note that your employer is not in a position to offer such independent advice.
