Fully expensed fuel cards are a popular benefit, however, they can prove very costly to both employees and employers. Fuel IQ enables you to move away from free fuel whilst ensuring no one is out of pocket.
Providing employees with a fully expensed fuel card is a popular benefit, however, in a lot of instances, employees end up paying more in tax for the ‘benefit’ of private fuel than the actual cost of the fuel itself.
And it’s not a great deal for the business either – which pays for the cost of the fuel plus employer NI on the value of the benefit.
With Fuel IQ, we work with you to come up with a policy and process to move away from free fuel whilst ensuring no one is out of pocket.
- We analyse the data on employees and ascertain which employees would be better off without ‘free fuel’, and which would not
- We pull together statements and explanations to demonstrate this
- For those who genuinely benefit from ‘free fuel’, we will work out what compensation is required to buy them out of the benefit
- We liaise with the employee and answer any questions directly
We will be there to help with every step of the way.
Employees can still use their fuel cards, so the business can still retain all the benefits fuel cards bring. Our team will simply provide a payroll file each month to deduct private mileage.
