Drive more, worry less with the Car Benefit Scheme.
Life is complicated enough, without the headache of owning a car. That’s why the Trust has teamed up with CPC Drive to bring you the Car Benefit Scheme.
You get the keys to a brand new car, fully maintained and insured for up to three years, in exchange for one fixed monthly reduction from your gross salary. The reduction is taken before Tax and National Insurance, meaning you could save on Tax and pay less than a regular car lease.
Benefits of the scheme:
- All-inclusive motoring: your fixed monthly cost includes a brand new car, insurance, servicing, routine repair, tyres, glass and breakdown cover.
- A new car typically every 3 years
- Fixed cost, fully comprehensive motor insurance
- One call number for all your vehicle needs
- Excellent fleet & public sector discounts
If you meet the eligibility, wish to view the wide range of cars available and get an instant quote then follow the steps below:
- Visit cpcdrive.nhs.uk
- Click ‘Create Account’
- Enter the Company Code: (NWBH) and your Unique Employee Identifier (this is your employee number found on your payslip) – this will be your log on for the future.
CPC Drive will forward your quote to the HR Admin Team, who will then process the eligibility form, this form will need to be signed off by you and your manager in order to process an order. You will also need to satisfy a National Minimum Wage Assessment. Upon receipt of the completed and signed eligibility form, HR will request an assessment which will be undertaken by Pay and staff services
It is important to note that the usual timescale for Trust to confirm eligibility for the scheme will be within five working days. However, we expect initially there will be a much higher demand than usual and in these exceptional circumstances we will operate a first come first served basis.
The Trust has reviewed the business mileage rates reimbursed to staff under the car salary sacrifice scheme and has decided to increase the rate from HMRC’s advisory rates for company cars to HMRC’s higher rate payable to own car users. However, please note that the difference between the two rates will be taxable and staff are reminded that it is their responsibility to advise HMRC of this liability by completing an annual self-assessment tax return.
