Replacing a company car – amendment in Employer Bulletin

20 August 2018

For those of you who have already read HMRC’s Employer bulletin: August 2018, an amendment has been made to the information about replacing a company car.

On page six under ‘Benefits and Expenses: Company cars’ the original Employer Bulletin said that you if your employee changes their company car, you can no longer report this online.  We contacted HMRC about this as we hadn’t heard that there was due to be a change.

HMRC confirmed the information was incorrect and amended the bulletin, which now reads:

“Replacing a company car – If your employee changes their company car, you can no longer report the change by a paper P46 (car). You can still report the change online or your employee can contact HMRC to tell us of this change by logging onto their Personal Tax Account or by calling the taxes helpline.”
