A company car allowance is money paid by an employers to an employee for the purposes of running a motor vehicle. A company car allowance provides some relief for class 1 National Insurance contributions and is therefore sometimes considered more attractive than a company car.

What is a trade in allowance?

Trade in allowance is the allowance provided by the vendors to the company when company sell the old asset and acquire the new same asset from vendor, trade-in allowance is the amount paid by vendor for the old asset if it is more than salvage value then it is gain otherwise loss on sale of asset.A trade-in allowance is the amount of money taken off the sale price in exchange for the item being traded in by the customer. It is most commonly seen in the automotive industry when a person trades in their old car to the dealer. The term "trade-in allowance" is used because it is different than the actual value of the item. For example, the new car has a retail price of $20,000, but the dealer would be willing to discount the vehicle and sell it for $19,000 cash. The old car has a wholesale value to the dealer of $8,000; but the dealer would offer a trade-in allowance of $9,000 off the full retail price of the new car. The difference between full retail and the trade-in allowance ($11,000) is the same as the difference between what the dealer is willing to take for the new car and what he is willing to pay for the trade-in (19 - 8 = 11). The actual values are used in the accounting entry. Here, the dealer records a $19,000 sale and a used car at a cost of $8,000.
