The vast majority of our field based team were furloughed at the end of March and are gradually being brought back into the business as required.
I was also furloughed for the majority of this time just being brought back at month ends to submit VAT, Intrastat etc.
During June I also completed the P11d's for all company car drivers for 2019/20.
Some of the drivers who were furloughed have not used their company cars whilst not working and have taken photos of their mileage at the start and end of furlough to prove that they did not drive the cars during this period. It was not possible/practical to return the vehicles to head office during this period during to travel restrictions and the distances involved.
Looking forward to the 2020/21 tax year will HMRC accept this approach or, as the cars were still with the drivers and available to drive, would they still be considered a BIK?
Any suggestions as to what they could have done differently?
