The current hot topic

Business vehicles

The start of the new tax year has seen a number of changes with regard to capital allowances on business vehicles. Here we consider the major changes.

First-year allowances

To support the uptake of zero emission vehicles and ultra-low emission vehicles, the Government has extended the 100% first-year allowance (FYA) for cars with low carbon dioxide emissions for a further four years to 31 March 2025. The qualifying emissions threshold for this is reduced from 50g/km to 0g/km for expenditure incurred on or after 1 April 2021.

Goods vehicles

In addition, the 100% FYA for zero-emission goods vehicles is extended for a further four years to 31 March 2025 for expenditure incurred by a person within the charge to corporation tax (5 April 2025 for expenditure for income tax).

Writing down allowances

Furthermore, the main rate writing down allowance (WDA) of 18% applies to cars with emissions up to 50g/km for expenditure incurred on or after 1 April 2021 (6 April 2021 for income tax).
The special rate WDA of 6% will apply to higher polluting cars with emissions above 50g/km.

Example

A company purchases two cars for £20,000 each in its 12 month accounting period to 31 March 2022. The dates of purchase and CO2 emissions are as follows:

White car Blue car
1 May 2021 1 May 2021
45 80

Allowances in the year to 31 March 2022 relating to these purchases will be:

White car (main pool as emissions up to 50g/km) Blue car (special rate pool as emissions more than 50g/km)
£20,000 @ 18% = £3,600 £20,000 @ 6% = £1,200

Lease rental restriction

The new 50g/km threshold also applies in determining the 15% lease rental restriction for costs of hiring business cars for more than 45 consecutive days in relation to contracts entered into on or after 1 April 2021 (6 April 2021 for income tax).
