This powerful comparison tool and independent data will enable you to compare the full running and operating costs of up to 4 new cars or vans side-by-side. By selecting your personal mileage and planned ownership period, the data will be tailored to your personal use and cost. Just select the nearest current mileage on the clock for used vehicles and the nearest mileage band for your personal use. Then choose how long you would like to run the vehicle.

This comparison service allows you to put in your personal motoring information and recalculate the costs to provide you with a real life comparison. For example, you can input your own purchase price for the vehicle under “depreciation”, alter the MPG or the amount of electric use if you use a hybrid, calculate your personal benefit in kind tax if you are a company car driver and alter the interest rate calculation if you plan to use a loan or dealer finance. You can then save the information for future use and comparison.

We’ve included a Benefit in Kind tax calculator for company car and van drivers to help you choose the most tax efficient vehicles.

So you are able to determine the optimum way to run your personal or company vehicles.

There is also an Employers National Insurance calculator for business Whole Life Cost calculations. This figure is amended whenever the Benefit in Kind calculation is changed to take account of private mileage fuel use, a capital contribution being made or employee monthly contributions.

Cars and vans depreciate at differing rates. This is the biggest cost to owning and operating a vehicle.
