How can Car Benefit Policies Around the World help you?

Should your company alter its car benefit policy based on geography or career level?

Although a global car benefit policy may seem preferable for its simplicity, not every employee needs a company car or car allowance. See the type of car benefits offered in each market, and learn how a company-provided vehicle may mean more to a manager in Brazil than it does to one in Hong Kong.

Does it make more sense for your organization to purchase or lease company vehicles?

Due to company-provided vehicles’ high rate of turnover and usage, policy managers may need to rethink their preconceived notions the virtues of purchasing versus leasing a vehicle. See which markets prefer company-owned fleets and what type of vehicles are most common.

What should your car benefit policy include?

Acquiring a vehicle can be expensive, but operating and maintaining one can add up too. Understand how companies account for vehicle-ownership costs such as insurance, fuel, maintenance, taxes, and other expenses in their car benefit policies.
