Hi trc

Where is the car stored overnight?

How many employees will have use of the car / will be insured to use the car?

What is your trading status- Sole or Limited?

Hi again

As long as the conditions below are met there will be no benefit charge and the company can claim corporation tax deduction in full for all expenes as appropriate and all input vat can be reclaimed including vat on car if charged.

It is probably sensible for the employees to keep a mileage log and mark fuel receipts so they revenue can see that the petrol claimed tallies with the business mileage done.

'Pool cars' are also eligible for a VAT refund providing VAT has been paid... A full mileage log must be kept to account for every mile travelled.
