    Default saloon

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "saloon" means in the following sentence:

    The director may use the following benefits:
    - company car in compliance with the relevant regulations, including VAT for saloon.

    Thanks a lot!

    A "saloon car" = AE Sedan car. A vehicle with two rows of seats and a compartment for carrying luggage at the back. http://tinyurl.com/2qh4ww

    Thanks! And is a "saloon car" a separate category from the point of view of VAT? (with regard to the fact that it is specifically mentioned in that sentence)

    It seems to be. I would have to see the complete document to know precisely why it has been separated in this way. It is possible that the price for such a car is higher than some permitted limit for company cars.

    A saloon car sounds funny in American English. It brings up a vision of an old west bar with lots of drinking and dancehall girls.
