My MD wants to phase out company leased cars for all staff including sales people. He knows he can’t compell people to change immediately but wants me to put in place a rule that as leases expire, they are replaced with an allowance. I am worried that sales staff in particular will be unhappy with this and reluctant to put high mileage on private cars – I have always considered a car to be a tool of the job for sales people. I also think some of the younger people will find it hard to come up with a deposit to buy a car or to take on a private lease, plus the cost of private lease is generally higher than the allowance the MD is proposing. Can the MD force people to go onto the allowance as leases expire?
