The calculations are based on the Mustang Mach-E’s P11D list price and its typical monthly lease cost. We’ve looked at three income tax bands – 20%, 40%, and 45%. This offers a view of a broad spectrum of salary bands and provides a general understanding of the potential financial pros and cons of salary sacrifice.

How we calculated our Ford Mustang 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 on 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.

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

The final word on Ford Mustang Salary Sacrifice schemes

We can see from the figures there are savings to be gained from taking out a Ford Mustang on a salary sacrifice, especially for higher taxpayers who are able to bundle in added extra such as roadside assistance and Ford Mustang Insurance. These figures are completely illustrative and individual circumstances will vary. The Ford Mustang examples should be used as a starting point before committing to a salary sacrifice scheme.

Remember, once you sign up for a salary sacrifice scheme you might not be able to exit the scheme early without incurring a fee. So it’s a good idea to review your own tax situation and, if needed, seek advice before you sign the contract.
