As part of the consultation on salary sacrifice for the provision of benefits-in-kind, the Government has engaged with trade organisations in the car rental, leasing and manufacturing sectors. The consultation closed on 19 October and all responses are being considered carefully.

The Government is committed to encouraging company car drivers to take-up driving of ultra-low emissions vehicles. On 10 August 2016, we published a separate consultation on proposals for incentivising low emission company cars.
