When an employee elects to sacrifice part of their salary towards a company vehicle, SAP will perform a comparison between the salary sacrifice and taxable benefit figures to determine which of the two is higher.

By performing this comparison and determining the higher value, SAP will then know whether to use the calculation method used in HMRC P11D Working Sheet 2, where the taxable benefit of the vehicle is higher than the salary sacrifice figure, or HMRC P11D Working sheet 2b where the salary sacrifice is the higher value.

SAP have also taken the opportunity to align how Regular Payments are calculated to bring the proration calculation in line with how vehicle unavailability is calculated for taxable benefit.

The attached document only covers employees who have their vehicle benefits taxed through payroll.
