What is the Scheme?
Similar to a Cycle-to-Work scheme, our new Electric Car Salary Sacrifice Scheme, in partnership with Octopus Electric Vehicles, means that Tinker Taylor employees can now benefit from a brand new (electric) vehicle which is paid monthly via their gross salary - saving them up to 40% on the cost of driving.
Why the ECSS?
We gravitated towards this scheme as a part of our drive to be more environmentally conscious (see our pledge to sustainability here.)
There are huge benefits to our employees and to the environment;
- Zero tailpipe emissions
- Free/discounted parking
- Savings on fuel, servicing maintenance and repair
- Future proofed for Clean Air Zones (and we know all about clean air zones - see our video on this for Birmingham City Council here!)
- Exempt from Road Tax
- Home charging grants
- No Congestion charge
These benefits will help massively when travelling to and from film shoots - cutting our corporate carbon footprint with zero-emission miles. AND, we’re cutting air pollution in our community- win, win!
Our editor in chief was so excited about this, he ordered his new electric car within 24 hours of Tinker Taylor launching the scheme!
Here’s to making Electric Dreams come true for all of our wonderful TT staff!
