Ltd company electric vehicle - selling to director

I want to find the best way of buying the electric car that was purchased by my Ltd Co

Didn't find your answer?


I have an electric car purchased by my limited company. Its current value is around 26k if I wanted to buy it at market value.  What are the tax implications of selling it to myself - I am going to sell the business but want to retain the vehicle.  Would I have to sell it to myself for market value plus VAT and then account for corporation tax on the sale ?

Are there any personal tax implications or better ways of doing this

What does your accountant advise?

You need an accountant.

Other professional bodies are available.

“If you intend to plan a course of action based on what you read in here, you should instead be taking professional advice.”

“They are not here to provide free accounting advice.”

If you're intending to sell, you definitely need an accountant. Selling the business and selling the company are different things with different tax consequences for you and for the buyer.
