Launched at the beginning of this tax year, the Volvo Fleet Tax Guide is a web app that instantly provides our business customers with all of the latest tax and regulatory figures relevant to company cars. Finding a way to access this information in a quick, easy and up-to-date way makes calculating the overall tax burden for companies much easier; even more so if it’s handily available on your smartphone.

So designed, the new Volvo Fleet Tax Guide does all those things and more, providing a single, updated source of information to ensure that fleet decision makers and their drivers are always up to date with obligations and entitlements.

And thanks to our latest update, the service now offers even more: its new function enables users to check if the cash alternative offered by their employer could increase the BIK tax on their company car.

For every car on fleet, the Fleet Tax Guide will instantly give you all the necessary tax and regulatory figures, including:

Tax rates and allowances

Personal and corporate, including lease rental restrictions

NIC rates and thresholds

 Employee and employer NIC rates and thresholds

Capital allowances

CO2-based first year, main pool and special rate pool allowances to 2018

BIK

Rates to 2019/20 and fuel benefit multipliers and charges for 2017/18

OLEV and hybrid grant

Includes level of grant and eligibility criteria

VED

Standard and first-year rates

AMAPs and AFRs

Maximum income tax-free rates for payments to employees.

There are two big challenges for fleet professionals when it comes to tax – the rules are complicated and they keep changing. This guide is continually updated with the latest information.
