Jo Brothers, True Potential Wealth Management

It's been fantastic to see JDE launch a scheme with such positive response from employees. We chose to partner with Octopus Electric Vehicles in this space because we are keen to support teams in reducing their carbon footprint by making the switch to electric driving.

What are the costs to my client?

We love answering this question. It costs them nothing to join. Our salary sacrifice scheme is totally free for employers to set up.

It’s a win-win. You get to help supercharge your client's benefits package so their staff can save up to 40% when they switch to an electric vehicle.

What's the risk for my client's business?

The salary sacrifice proposition is designed through the lens of treating customers fairly. We designed the scheme such that any risk of the cost of the vehicle becoming unaffordable are almost entirely eliminated.

What does that mean?

  • At the point of an employee signing up, we suggest employers undertake an affordability check to ensure the salary sacrifice for the vehicle will not take the employee below minimum wage. We can also provide tools to enable the employer to do this.
  • Our Early Termination Waiver product enables the employer and employee to return the car at no cost in the case of the key life events that would impact their ability to afford it. These include: resignation, redundancy, long-term sick leave and parental leave. The terms are fully set out in the Master Hire Agreement.
  • By combining these preventative measures and including our early termination waiver we both reduce the risk of affordability issues and mitigate the impact of affordability challenges that may arise from a change in circumstances.
How long does it take for a business to get salary sacrifice live?

Once your client has had a chat with our team, and confirmed their interest, we ask them to complete a credit application and sign their agreement. Once signed, we work with them to set up their direct debits and other processes before launching to staff. This can be sorted in as little as 2-4 weeks!
