Audi Salary Sacrifice Examples

Subscribing or leasing an Aldi through salary sacrifice can provide significant benefits to both employees and businesses. In this guide, we review specific examples of how salary sacrifice schemes might work for a selection of popular Audi EV models: the Audi Q4 e-tron, Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback Special Edition, Audi Q8 e-tron, and the Audi e-Tron GT.

We have broken down the potential monthly tax savings, lease costs, and net expenses for each model, for 3 different tax bands to provide an example relevant to your tax situation.

How we calculated our Audi salary sacrifice examples

Each example breaks down the potential savings and costs involved in a salary sacrifice scheme, which includes:

  • The amount of income tax saved
    This is calculated as a percentage of the monthly lease cost and depends on your income tax band.

  • National Insurance (NI) savings
    For these examples, an employee’s NI rate of 2% was applied to the monthly lease cost.

  • The Benefit In Kind (BIK) that would be paid
    BIK is a tax applied to employees who receive benefits or perks on top of their salary. The current rate of 2% of the P11D price (divided by 12 for a monthly figure) was used.

  • The employer’s NI contribution to the BIK value
    This is calculated at a rate of 13.8% on the BIK value.

  • The net cost
    This represents the overall monthly cost to the employee after all deductions and additions.

  • Monthly lease cost
    We took this figure from the current Octopus Electric Vehicles price.

These calculations provide a starting point for understanding how an electric car salary sacrifice scheme could impact your monthly outgoings if you were to lease or subscribe to an Audi. They should be used as a guide rather than definitive advice, and it is always recommended to consult with an accountant for personalised advice.
