The car benefit is chargeable on employees earning £8,500 or over per year (including
benefits), and directors. The charge is calculated by multiplying two figures:
the initial list price of the car, including accessories, delivery charge and VAT
the appropriate percentage, which is normally based on the carís carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rating, and whether the engine runs on petrol or diesel.
The table below gives the carbon dioxide emissions ratings for 2008/09. The exact carbon dioxide emissions figure is rounded down to the nearest 5g/km.
