0% Benefit in Kind

As an employee, you may receive a company car for personal use as a Benefit in Kind (non-cash value). Every BiK has a tax rate that is applied to your income tax.

Starting in April 2020, all Tesla cars will be eligible for 0% BiK rate during the 2020-2021 tax year. Petrol and diesel cars will be taxed at higher BiK rates — up to 37%.
