Lex Autolease research: Company car voted top salary sacrifice benefit

More than 20% of employers would opt for a company car above other salary sacrifice benefits, according to a survey from Lex Autolease.

Conducted among 130 employees, the survey also found 78% of respondents would take up a salary sacrifice car if they had to replace a privately owned one.

A similar number (71%) would be enticed if the tax savings were up to £50 better than private leasing.

Claudia Rose, corporate sales director at Lex Autolease, said: “There is a significant pent-up demand in the grey fleet sector for employee benefits like company cars, particularly if they offer tax breaks in a hassle-free, payroll-based package like salary sacrifice.”
