Hi I am self-studying for AAT Level 4 and my exam is soon in a couple of weeks. I would appreciate if someone can help me with this:

Employee is provided with a company car which cost the company £8000 but the list price is £17000. The car has CO2 emissions of 168 g/km, and has a diesel engine. The company pays for all running costs, except private fuel.

1) The cost of the car used in the benefit in kind in computation is: .....
2) The percentage used in the benefit in kind in computation is: .....%
2) The assessable benefit for the employee: .....


My answer:
1)17000 - correct
2) 33% - correct
3) 17000*0.33 = £5610 but my answer is wrong....the correct answer is £2805.

Can somebody explain why is that?
