Order your double cab pick-up now before rules change 1 July 2024

From 1 July 2024, HMRC is going to reclassify double cab pick-ups as ‘cars’ for employment benefit and capital allowance purposes. Pick-ups acquired or ordered before 1 July will benefit from a transition period.

What is a double cab pick-up?

Typically, a double cab pick-up has:

  • A front passenger cab containing two rows of seats capable of seating three or four passengers, plus the driver.
  • Four doors in addition to any rear door that are capable of being opened independently.
  • A load-bearing pickup area behind the cab.

New policy from July 2024

HMRC have revised both their Employment Income Manual and Capital Allowance Manual to state that from 1 July 2024, the meaning of ‘car’ will no longer be interpreted in line with the definition used for VAT purposes in respect of double cab pick-ups.
