When it comes to P11D van benefits, it’s crucial to understand what’s reportable. The benefit arises when an employer provides a van with ‘unrestricted private use’ to an employee. It’s a taxable benefit that must be declared.

Understanding the Taxable Benefit


The value of the benefit for a provided van does not depend on its list price, which sets it apart from company cars. Instead, a fixed rate determined by HMRC applies. For the tax year 2023/24, this value is £3,960.

Additional Fuel Benefit


If an employer pays for the van’s fuel for private use, an additional ‘fuel benefit’ is added. The set rate for fuel benefit is £757 for the 2023/24 tax year. It’s important to include this in the P11D calculations.

Zero Emissions Vans Advantage


There’s good news for the environment and for users of zero-emission vans. If you use a fully electric van, the taxable benefit drops to nil. This incentive aligns with greener policies and encourages electric vehicle use.

Charging Benefits for Electric Vans


Furthermore, the use of workplace charging facilities for electric vans does not incur a taxable benefit. This exemption contributes to a more eco-friendly approach in the workplace.
