    Default Company Vehicle Usage

    Long story short...

    I work for a haulage company and we have Artic's, 15 tonners, 7.5 tonners and 3.5 ton vans. Two depots locally - main depot and satellite depot. Nobody except supervisors and manager use a van to get to work but they do in the satellite depot, always have for the last few years.

    Should those who get a van for travelling to and from work have to pay company car tax on their wages?

    You only pay it if you use it in your personal time, so no they shouldn't

    Travel to a regular place of work and back is classed as personal use as far as tax is concerned.

    Isn't standard travel to work classed as domestic if you are going from your home to your place of work? Otherwise the everyday journey is a tax dodge as the company are paying for the daily commute?

    I have a company car as well as a private car and I have to pay my personal mileage to my main place of work?

    My partners dad has a pick-up that he uses to travel to work and back, but also spends all day using, and he doesnt have to pay cc tax on that, so maybe it depends on the place of work and what rules they choose to use?

    If you collect your company from work and use it for work during the day and then return it to the office then no, BUT if you use your company vehicle to go home or to the place where your job is, then yes.

    If you just travel to and from your place of work in a company VAN then there is no P11D benefit. You can also use it VERY occasionally for private use (e.g. taking a load to the dump twice a year...) and still not incur a taxable benefit.

    If you have a company car the rules are different, if you travel to and from your place of wok this is classed as private use. In almost every case a company CAR is a taxable benefit.

    Hope this helps...
