That's the conclusion I came to it's swings and roundabouts and not really worth the extra paperwork for me.If you don’t need to be Vat, its often best not to be. While you can get 20% back on your supplies, you have to charge your customers 20% more…
I asked the unwind cable question to the installer of my Pod Point and he said such a short length wouldn't make any difference. My cable gets very slightly warm if I'm charging for a long time whether it's unwound or not. I just unwind enough to let the cable lay flat on the ground so delivery people don't trip over it.No one has managed to talk me out of buying a LR exclusive yet even though I know it will be tight room wise. The dealer quoted £27800 in white with mats and charge cable. Seems a little steep to me so holding out until they offer a colour and spare wheel.
Just thinking about the charger if I go for a tethered cable will I need to unwind if fully to prevent it overheating. The charger will be mounted right in front of were the cars parked.

Is being a small business a qualifying criteria for MG Affinity?If you want tell them it's for a small business they might do you a deal.
The MG Affinity programme has launched, meaning that all public sector workers, including all emergency service workers and frontline healthcare staff, as well as those who are privately running small and local businesses, will be eligible for big discounts on a range of MG models.
But that means you cant claim the 45p mileage allowance though and are stuck with ‘actual’ costs for length of vehicle , which won’t be much, and any personal use has to be apportioned for in the capital allowance. This is a calculation that needs to be considered carefully depending on how many miles you do. eg. 10,000 miles a year would give you £4,500 off your tax due on the mileage rate each year.The range will be more than enough for 95% of your needs. You will find ways around the other 5%.
Customers will not be concerned about the vehicle being an estate and not a van. So long as you are professional.
Small businesses qualify for the AffInity scheme. The current price for the MG5 exclusive, with choice of paint and a type 2 cable, is £24850ish. The excite is approx £2k less.
Pretty sure if you are self employed you can write off 100% of the value of a zero emissions car in the first part, or full, financial year of ownership.
