If companies purchase a car with CO2 emissions of 110g/km or less before 01.04.13 they will be able to claim a 100% deduction from their profits for the cost in the year of the purchase.

This represents a considerable tax advantage over those which are relieved over a period of time, sometimes it can take up to 50 years for the cost of a car to be fully deducted from company profits.

Visit for a lists all cars with CO2 emissions of this threshold and under and there is a greater choice than you might expect, including a BMW Series 3 and Mercedes C Class.

If this is something your company may be looking at, timing of your purchase is crucial.  The threshold is dropped to 95 g/km from 01.04.13 which will greatly reduce the amount of cars available.
