What is a salary sacrifice scheme?

A salary sacrifice scheme, sometimes known as an employee car scheme, allows you to lease a brand-new car by paying for it with your pre-taxed annual salary.

Essentially, the company you work for is leasing a new car on your behalf, making it an excellent benefit to have access to.

The monthly payment for your chosen vehicle is taken before tax is collected from your income, meaning you save money in the process.

Once you select a car, your lease will last for an agreed period of time, which is typically three years. At the end, you either hand the vehicle back or buy it outright for a pre-agreed sum.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are salary sacrifice car schemes worth it?

Salary sacrifice schemes are worth it for a variety of reasons. They save you money on leasing a new car, which is ideal if you're in the market for a new car and want to make the most of your budget. Not only that, but you get maintenance and breakdown cover included within your monthly payment, making it a hassle-free experience.

Do you own the car in a car salary sacrifice scheme?

No, you won't own any car leased through the salary sacrifice scheme. As part of the scheme, businesses are essentially leasing the car on your behalf, helping you to save money when paying for the car on a monthly basis. However, there will be the option to buy the car at the end of your agreement for an agreed sum.

Does the salary sacrifice car scheme have an effect on your pension?

Whether a car leased through salary sacrifice will impact your pension will depend on the type of pension you have. If you have a defined contribution pension scheme, then your pension contribution is calculated before your salary sacrifice has been applied, meaning it's unlikely to have an impact on your pension contribution, and therefore the benefits payable during retirement.

However, the impact on your pension can be bigger if you participate in a defined benefit pension scheme if the salary sacrifice has not been approved by the government. This is because, in a defined pension benefit scheme, your pension contributions are based on your salary after any deductions (such as salary sacrifice).

Is there an upfront cost for a car leased through salary sacrifice?

There's no upfront cost when leasing a car through the salary sacrifice scheme. You pay an agreed monthly sum for the duration of the agreement, with no deposit required.

Are electric cars available through a salary sacrifice car scheme?

A variety of electric and hybrid cars are available through the salary sacrifice car scheme. Because of the reduced running costs associated with these vehicles, it represents a great opportunity to save more money when leasing a new car.

Does salary sacrifice affect your credit score?

No, salary sacrifice will not impact your credit score since the lease is considered a business contract hire, and not a personal contract hire.
