    Hi

    Is anyone able to help me find out if I will be taxed the full ammount on my company car whilst I am on maternity leave? Currently the tax is around 175.00 a month, and I ma not sure how I will manage if this is taken out of my SMP each month!

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks!

    I think that you should still be entitled to it, found this on the Direct gov website:

    During your maternity leaveYour terms and conditions during maternity leave
    While you're on ordinary maternity leave, you keep your normal employment rights and benefits (apart from wages). This might include any access to a company car or mobile phone that you have as part of your employment contract. If you take additional maternity leave, some contractual rights and benefits (eg company car) can be suspended, although your statutory rights continue.

    However, if your baby is or was due on or after 5 October 2008, you keep your normal employment rights and benefits (apart from wages) throughout your ordinary and additional maternity leave.

    you need to check with your HR section though to be sure
