The company provided him with a car that cost $40,000 and that has an undepreciated capital cost of $18,000. The operating costs of $3,000 were paid by KM. In 20X3, Kay drove the car 20,000 km, of which 8,000 km was for employment purposes. KM contributed $4,000 on Kay’s behalf to a deferred profit sharing plan.
