What is a salary sacrifice scheme?

Salary sacrifice is an employee benefit scheme that allows your team to access a fantastic range of electric vehicles (EVs) at no upfront cost.

Our salary sacrifice car scheme offers a number of tax and personal benefits savings for the employee who pays for their electric vehicle from their gross salary before tax.


Is there a cost to employers to set up the salary sacrifice scheme?

Our salary sacrifice scheme is totally free for employers to set up.

It’s a win-win. You get to supercharge your employee benefits package and your team can save up to 40% when they switch to an electric vehicle.

How do employees save up to 40% on the cost of an electric vehicle through salary sacrifice?

Employees make savings on their tax and personal benefits when they switch to an electric car under our salary sacrifice scheme.

The payments come straight out of the employee's gross pay, which reduces their monthly salary.

Because of this reduction in salary, there is a subsequent 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 car payments.

If you were leasing a car out of your net monthly payments (your salary after tax), you'd be paying your taxes and paying your car payments too. That's why it works out so much cheaper to get an electric vehicle through our salary sacrifice scheme.

How does my business sign up to the salary sacrifice scheme?
