Remove tax on vans for field service workers.

Comment 7th July 2010

Currently home-based field service engineers lose £3000 of their tax allowance because they have access to a company vehicle which is treated as a benefit.

 What is not taken into consideration is that a van is actually a mobile workplace without which they cannot do their job, not a luxury.They have no choice as to whether or not they have a van, it is a requirement in order for them to carry all the tools and spares necessary.

 Previously, as long as there was not private use there was no tax charge, which was fair.

Why does this matter?

This is a tax on skilled trades. Office-based workers don't pay a tax on the use of the office.
