Hi,

You cannot claim a car for use in your business as an expense, this will need to be claimed as a capital allowance.

Capital allowances on cars are restricted to the amount you can claim depending up on the CO2 emission rating.

You can find the guidance on how to work this out in our Capital Allowances and Balancing Charges helpsheet here:
