How much can I save with salary sacrifice?
Employees make savings on their tax and personal benefits when they switch to an electric car under our salary sacrifice scheme. Depending on how much tax you pay, these savings can be as much as 40%.
The payments come straight out of your gross pay, which reduces your monthly salary.
Because of this reduction in salary, there is a reduction on income tax and National Insurance payments. Employers' National Insurance payments are reduced too.
Money that you'd normally never see (because it goes straight out of your pay to HMRC) actually goes straight towards your electric car payments.
What other savings can I make?
By switching to an electric car you'll make great savings on fuel costs in the long run. The cost of charging an electric car using our Intelligent Octopus EV tariff is as low as 3p per mile.
Plus, we include even more than just the car to help you save money - including charger, energy, maintenance, tyres and breakdown support.

How much you pay depends on the car’s cost and the income tax bracket you fall into. You save on Income Tax and National Insurance. Plus, Benefit in Kind (BiK) tax is just 2% right now. The Benefit in Kind rate is set by the government. It’s worth noting this is currently fixed at 2% until April 2025 and after this, it'll increase by 1% each year until 2028.
