Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to assist you with your question. If your employer goes down this route they will end up with having to submit a P11D, notification of a benefit in kind upon which the employee will be taxed. A far simpler solution, and one operated by most organisations, is to pay a miieage allowance. The maximum is 45p per mile, a rough and ready twist of the spoon to stop the treacle running off so to speak, taking into account both running and capital costs. If they pay at a lower rate then the difference between the rate paid and 45p can be claimed as an expense in employment on the employee's annual self assessment tax return. I do hope that my reply has been of assistance and shown you a way forward.
Thank you for your support.
