The idea behind salary sacrifice is quite simple. You give up part of your salary and, in return, your employer gives you a non-cash benefit, in this case a car.

Once you accept a salary sacrifice, your overall pay is lower, so you pay less tax, National Insurance and if you’re a member of your employers pension scheme, possibly less in pension contributions.

In addition, your employer will not have to pay their Employers’ National Insurance contributions and possibly pension contributions on the amount you sacrifice

The Salary Sacrifice will last for an agreed period, specified in your Variation of Contract.  At the end of the agreed period, the Variation of Contract will come to an end and you will return to your original terms and conditions.

If you have not had an electric car before, you should complete adequate research to ensure it would be suited to your lifestyle. For example, do you have private off-street parking for charging at home? How many public charge points are installed in your local area? Will you need to register the car for any tolls or congestion zone exemptions/discounts? How long is your average commute, is the estimated mileage range enough taking into account real world driving conditions? Some useful references might be ev-database.uk and zap-map.com

Approval is required from your employer prior to ordering your car as we need to confirm the details you have provided are correct – any discrepancies may result in a delay with the ordering process.

As the car will be leased by your employer, they also need to agree to the contract terms.

Approval from your Employer must be obtained within the quotation expiry date. We do send your employer regular reminders if a request remains outstanding however, if you are concerned about any delays, we would recommend contacting your staff benefits team.

A driver entitlement check form needs to be completed by everyone wanting to drive the car.  This allows us to check all licences both at the start, and periodically throughout the lease, to make sure all drivers continue to be entitled to drive.

Pension taxes such as Annual Allowance (AA) and Lifetime Allowance (LA) are based upon your salary, therefore changes in your salary can have an impact on these allowances, which can be affected by; promotions, pensionable bonuses or other factors in addition to leaving a salary sacrifice arrangement.  The calculation of the Annual Allowance that you have available is very complex and HMRC have provided a calculation tool that you can use;

(Check if you have an annual allowance tax charge on your pension savings)

You are advised to seek independent financial advice about this before proceeding with any salary sacrifice.

Did this solve your query?

There is a legal requirement to be paid above the National Minimum Wage after any salary sacrifice has been taken into account, which means for some colleagues, a salary sacrifice for a ‘big ticket’ item such as a car isn’t possible.  An alternative solution in these circumstances is a Salary Deduction.

The car is provided in exactly the same way as it would be via a salary sacrifice; however the payment is taken from net pay.

This scheme will work out more expensive as savings in tax, National Insurance and pension contributions cannot be made.

Please note that this scheme is not offered by all employers – please contact a member of our team to discuss further.

Due to a global supply chain issue and component shortages, manufacturers are experiencing delays and therefore vehicle lead-times have increased. Further information regarding this is available to view within this news article.

Replacement tyres are included in the cost of the lease, you’re already paying for them, so don’t delay having them replaced! 

The tyre supplier will vary from leasing company to leasing company (it will normally be ATS or Kwik-Fit), therefore please contact your leasing company who will advise you where you need to go.  Some suppliers offer a mobile service, but before they’ll make a booking, they will need the tyre size and speed rating (found on the sidewall of the tyre).

Please note: Any tyres that are changed as a result of sidewall damage may result in a pro-rata charge. This charge will be raised to you via an invoice by the leasing company following completion of the work.

Your leasing company details can be located in the My Account section of our website under ‘vehicle details’ or in your Driver Handbook.

An early termination fee is a financial penalty contractually due should your car contract not be completed for any reason.  The value of the penalty depends upon a number of factors which include; the original contract length, the cost of the lease and how far into the lease you are when the contract is ended.  It does reduce every year on the anniversary of the date you took delivery of your car.

The exact value is outlined on your original ‘Order Form’ (a copy of which can be found in the My Account section of our website).

In order to terminate the agreement, the request must be approved upon review of a valid lifestyle change and the penalty must be paid in advance of arranging collection of the car.

The majority of organisations operate a one month in arrears policy, so your first payment will be in the month following the delivery of your lease vehicle, for example if you take delivery of your car in June, your first payment will be from your July salary.

All routine servicing is included within the cost of the lease. 

There is no hard and fast rule as to when cars need servicing, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and also model to model.  The service interval for your car will be outlined within the vehicle handbook (normally found within the glove box) - if you are unsure please contact a main dealer for advice.

It is very important that you are familiar with the service interval for your car, as should you neglect to adhere to the manufacturers’ guidelines for servicing, the warranty on the vehicle will be voided and all subsequent defects will not be covered by the manufacturer and will be your financial responsibility.

If you are moving to a public sector organisation that Fleet Solutions also provides the lease car scheme to, then it is likely that your car can go with you (subject to approval and a minimum of nine months remaining on your current lease car contract).

If you move to a public sector organisation that Fleet Solutions does not provide a scheme to, we will approach your new employer and offer a transfer subject to the new employer meeting our contractual terms and conditions.  This tends to be 50:50 whether they’ll accept the transfer or not.  If it’s a no, the early termination penalty needs to be paid and the car will be returned.

Please note: It is not possible to facilitate a transfer of lease car between organisations where there is a gap in employment and if you if you leave the public sector, your car will almost certainly need to be returned.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer private leasing.

Your quotation will show a monthly tax liability which is payable because you will have a ‘company car’.  How this amount is recovered depends upon how your employer reports its employee benefits to HMRC.  There are essentially two ways of reporting benefits; via p11d or a more recently introduced method referred to as ‘tax at source’. 

If your employer reports benefits via a p11d, then we will notify HMRC that you have taken delivery of a car and your tax code will be changed to reflect the fact you have a company car.  It normally takes a month or two for HMRC to issue a new coding notice. If your employer’s benefits are ‘taxed at source’, you will not see a change to your tax code and the additional tax will be deducted by your employer direct from your salary and handed to HMRC.

If you contact HMRC to discuss your tax code, please confirm you have a ‘company car’ and that you do NOT make a monthly contribution towards it – this is because HMRC does not recognise salary sacrifice reductions as contribution towards the car, but not all of their officers understand this.  It has been known for HMRC officers to incorrectly change tax codes taking salary sacrifice reductions into account only for their error to be discovered at year end, thus resulting in a significant underpayment.  This can hopefully be avoided by confirming the above during any discussions with HMRC.

Did this solve your query?

Yes.  Unlike other manufacturers, Teslas are not 'built to order' but instead orders are matched to the next available vehicle and this makes it very difficult for us to provide accurate lead times (and vehicle updates).  Indicative lead times can be found on Tesla's website, however, these are from the point of order.   Tesla will provide a window of 7 days in which you must take delivery; if this is missed, you will be matched to the next available vehicle (Fleet Solutions have no control when this will be).

Please call our Liaison Team if you wish to discuss options: 0344 811 8228.

A number of state benefits are dependent on paying a minimum level of NIC, for instance Statutory Sick Pay and Job Seekers Allowance. You should consider the impact on such future benefits if the Salary Sacrifice means that your Revised Basic Salary falls below the starting level for paying NIC.  For further information on the current starting level for NIC please contact your payroll department.

You should also be aware that a reduction in taxable salary may affect other company and state benefits such as statutory maternity pay, sick pay, and their level of entitlement in the event of death.  A reduction in taxable salary might also affect more general financial matters such as mortgage applications.

From April 2003 the government introduced Credits, WTC and CTC and in 2013 UC. It should be noted that quotations do not take into account the impact on WTC, CTC or UC which may mean that it may not be appropriate for some employees to participate in the scheme. WTC and UC are means tested and WTC affects the amount of CTC an employee may receive. These credits consider the earnings and savings of the employee and their spouse/ partner. If participating in the scheme were to alter the amount of credits an employee could claim, any loss of credits may be greater than the tax and NIC savings that may be generated. In principle a company car Benefit in Kind is considered earnings for the purposes of these credits. Consequently each employee’s situation is different and it is necessary to take the spouse/partner’s salary and savings into account in order to estimate the most realistic impact of participating in the scheme. If you qualify for state benefits such as the Disabled Persons Tax Credit (DPTC) you may qualify for a higher level of credit.

If you are currently claiming WTC, CTC or UC you should consider very carefully the likely impact on your income before committing to any salary sacrifice.

END OF LEASE

Please contact our team on 0344 811 8228 to arrange the collection of your lease vehicle.  We will require a minimum of five working days’ notice to have your car collected. Vehicles can only be collected Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays.

Prior to collection, your vehicle needs a valid MOT certificate, be free of dashboard warning lights and the tyres need to be legal.

Did this solve your query?

If your lease is for 36 months, your car will require an MOT before it can be collected and returned.  The cost is covered by the lease agreement.

Please contact your lease company who can make the arrangements for you or simply book your car into the dealership who carries out your routine servicing.  Your leasing company details can be located in the My Account section of our website under the ‘vehicle details’ or in your Driver Handbook.

Yes, you can exchange your vehicle earlier than your lease agreement, as long as you follow the early termination process and you will also need to demonstrate a valid lifestyle change. Please contact our Aftercare Team on 0344 811 8228 (option 1) to discuss this with them.

We are unable to offer a formal extension on current lease agreements.

At the end of the agreement, your car will be returned to the leasing company.  There are industry standards for what condition a car can be returned in without incurring ‘damage’ charges.  The industry body is the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) who produce ‘fair wear and tear’ guidelines.  For clear explanations on what levels of damage may be classed as fair wear and tear, please see this document.  

Should your car be returned with damage over and above what is considered ‘fair wear and tear’, a damage invoice will be raised by the leasing company.  We understand this can be an emotive issue with drivers and will always act in the best interests of our customer and will negotiate with the leasing company on their behalf.  However it is not always possible to argue that damage is within the industry guidelines.

If you would like any advice before returning your vehicle please contact After Care on 0344 811 8228.

If you drive less miles than anticipated and the car is returned with less miles than you have set the contract for, a charge will not apply. Under the terms of the scheme, underused mileage is not reimbursed.

Please note, if your contract is terminated early, the allowed mileage will be calculated on a pro-rata basis for the period you had the car.

Did this solve your query?

If you drive more miles than you have set the contract for, an excess mileage charge will apply.  The rates will vary depending on the vehicle and when this was ordered. Charges for vehicles ordered after 18th May 2019 are as follows:

Petrol - 5p per mile

Diesel - 5p per mile

Electric - 10p per mile

Hybrid (Petrol & Diesel) – 10p per mile

PHEV - 15p per mile

If your order was placed prior to the 18th May 2019 please contact the team on 0344 8118228 for further information.

Please note these rates are subject to VAT.

If you early terminate your contract, the allowed mileage will be pro-rata over the period you actually paid for the car.  If you extend the lease, additional mileage will be allocated also on a pro-rata basis.

Did this solve your query?

Yes, please contact us and tell us the exact mileage and we can request a price for you from the leasing company.  Unfortunately we have no input or influence on the price offered.

INSURANCE

Yes, it is possible to have up to four additional named drivers insured for the car (drivers are required to complete a licence check mandate). No driver with any of the excluded occupations listed in the ‘Insurance’ section within your Drivers Handbook can be insured on the car.

You can add insurance for additional drivers via the website, please visit the 'My Account,' 'Manage Drivers' section on our website to do this.

You must provide accurate email addresses for your additional drivers. We will email them an online Driver Entitlement Consent Form which must be completed. A licence check will be carried out once complete – usually within an hour or two. If successfully added to the insurance, the 'Additional Drivers' section within 'My Account' will update with the results.

Only Additional Drivers who have a status of 'Insured' are permitted to use the vehicle.

Please note: If your car is at the order stage, you are required to wait until the car has been delivered to amend your additional drivers.

Our insurance is a fleet policy and as such you do not accrue official no claims bonus.

We recommend contacting individual insurers and communicating this to them for advice before committing to a policy.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES

No, but it does help. We provide the option to add a 7kW home charging unit to your order via our electric charging partner Pod Point, which allows you to charge your car at home instead of finding a public charging point. The cost of the unit is split over your lease length and added to your monthly cost.

Did this solve your query?

If you are leasing an electric vehicle with Fleet Solutions the addition of a charging point installation must be selected on the 'Review Quote' page, prior to continuing with an order. Our team will be in touch via email or telephone to arrange delivery, and installation for a date and time that best suits you, free of charge.

Please note, It is not possible to add a home charging point after the order/delivery stage. Home charge points after this stage would need to be sourced privately.

Did this solve your query?

This is dependent on a number of factors, including battery size. The bigger the battery the longer the car will take to charge. This is usually the case for bigger cars.

Did this solve your query?

The pod point unit remains your property therefore you can leave it at the premises or arrange privately for the unit to be moved to a new address. This would be at your own cost and your monthly lease car payments will continue as usual to include the cost of the original home charge unit.

Did this solve your query?

The charging point is part of your Fleet Solutions contract. Once your lease has ended, your charging point will not be removed, therefore if you wish to purchase/lease electric cars in the future, you will not have the hassle of re-installing the charger. If you wish to have it un-installed, please contact Pod Point (the company that installed your unit).
