Upcoming legislation: Ultra Low Emission Vehicles
From 6 April 2020 the car and car fuel benefit calculation is changing with the introduction of 11 new bands for ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) including a separate zero emissions band. This is to support the Government’s commitment to improving air quality in towns and cities. If your client’s company car has a CO2 emission figure of 1-50g/km, they will need to provide the cars zero emission mileage. This is the distance that the car can travel in miles on a single electric charge.
