How salary sacrifice works
Pendragon Let's Drive is an Optional Remuneration Arrangement which is a benefit scheme that enables employees to get a brand new car. As part of the group behind Evans Halshaw and Stratstone, we can offer your employees amazing corporate discounts on new cars and an all-inclusive fixed monthly price that includes tax, insurance, maintenance and more.
There are no credit checks required for the driver and no large up-front payment on the vehicle. The all inclusive monthly payment that is deducted from their salary before tax, all the employee has to worry about is fuel. A salary sacrifice vehicle is subject to company car tax, also known as Benefit-In-Kind. This is paid before tax and national insurance, meaning there are plenty of savings to be had.

Why it's good for employers
A new car can help increase employee motivation, leading to improved productivity and retention and as the employer it costs you zero to set up and is easy to run. No catch. Just really great value.
As the employer you lease the car on behalf of your employee and they then get to drive a brand-new electric car using part of their gross salary - making savings on income tax and national insurance.
A Pendragon salary sacrifice car scheme can also help towards meeting duty of care obligations for drivers who use their own vehicles for business use. By providing your drivers with brand new, fully maintained vehicles equipped with the latest in vehicle safety and technology. There is also a positive impact on the environment as employees are encouraged to move away from older cars into new more fuel efficient vehicles.
