Vehicle benefit charges updated

Craig Buckingham

Vehicle benefit charges updated from April 2022

The vehicle benefit charges were updated following the Chancellor’s Budget speech. Where employees are provided with fuel for their own private use by their employers, the car fuel benefit charge is applicable. The fuel benefit charge is determined by reference to the CO2 rating of the car, applied to a fixed amount. The car fuel benefit charge will increase in 2022-2 to £25,300 (from £24,600). The fuel benefit is not applicable when the employee pays for all their private fuel.

The standard benefit charge for private use of a company van will increase to £3,600 (from £3,500). A company van is defined as ‘a van made available to an employee by reason of their employment’. There is an additional benefit charge for fuel when a van has significant private use. The limit will increase in 2022-23 to £688 (from £669). If private use of the van is insignificant then no benefit will apply.

Since 6 April 2021, the van benefit charge has been reduced to zero for vans that produce zero carbon emissions. This measure supports the government’s climate change agenda by encouraging the uptake up of vans that emit zero carbon emissions.
