The electrification of your business fleet: An energy transition that opens the gates to controlled taxation

 

The evolution of regulations and taxes on polluting emissions has a direct impact on the taxation of fleet managers. The new ecological bonus / penalty scale presented in the context of the 2020 finance bill is tightening for drivers of polluting vehicles. The ecological penalty is calculated based on the vehicle's CO2 emission rate and then is passed on in the form of a tax. March 1, 2020 mark the entry into force of a new bonus / penalty calculation standard with WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures) certification.

 

The objective of the WLTP cycle is to harmonize the calculation of pollutant emissions worldwide. As a direct consequence of this new approval, the ecological penalty thresholds will be stricter and the taxes applied more weighty.

Company vehicles and long-term rentals are affected by the ecological bonus / penalty. It is advisable to think about taxation when you compose your vehicle fleet. The nature of your fleet has a direct impact on your expenses. Electric vehicles, considered clean, are not affected by the ecological penalty and therefore allow you to benefit from the bonus. In addition, 100% electric vehicles are not subject to the tax on company vehicles. Choosing the right electric for your corporate car fleet is therefore more economical in terms of management costs.

Turn to electricity to limit your carbon impact and optimize the mobility of your employees

In addition to the fiscal aspect, the environmental aspect is a crucial issue. Several large cities are already chasing diesel vehicles by limiting their circulation. After Paris, it is the whole Ile de France region, but also Marseille, Clermont-Ferrand, Fort-de-France, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Reims, Saint-Etienne, Strasbourg, Toulon, Toulouse and Rouen which are planning more or less long term to prohibit access to diesel vehicles.

Constraints that can strongly impact the travel of your employees and limit the exercise of their activity.
