If you are using what is called an employer provided vehicle then the calculation is as follows:
"Fixed percentage per month x the determined value of the motor vehicle"
However if the car was bought under an operating lease then the cost FB to you would be the cost of lease payments + any fuel expenditure.
For the first option the rate is 3.25% if there is a maintenance plan or 3.5% if there is not. The Value of the vehicle does not include the interest component so I'm am assuming R379 000 for this purpose. The value must also be depreciated by 15% per annum for use each year.This can only happen for completed years. So please check the number of months and completed years of purchase.
You will need to give me the value of the car at the appropriate date for me to determine the FB unless you search for "Interpretation Note No. 14" on the SARS website to get the correct Fixed Cost.
