Prestolite Electric – Coronavirus Update


During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the team at Prestolite Electric Ltd is vigilant in monitoring the situation while taking steps to help protect the health and well-being of our employees, customers and business partners.

As a result of the British Government’s advice on 23rd March we have a few items to share with you during these unprecedented times:

  • The Greenford site will remain operational but the factory will operate Monday to Thursday only.
  • Customer Service and the Warehouse will operate from Monday to Friday but with personnel split into teams, working every other day to ensure continuity and minimise social interaction.
  • We are promoting homeworking for the foreseeable future for our employees, wherever possible. We will be able to maintain all of our services and operations under this new directive.
  • When homeworking is not possible and an employee needs to be on site, we have taken measures to limit exposures to others.
  • We are encouraging customers to call our team of customer service personnel or their assigned salespeople to assist you over the phone, or through virtual meeting services or via email rather than meeting in person. We have asked our employees to suspend any travel during this time.
  • We have temporarily suspended outside visitors into any of our facilities in Greenford, UK.
  • We have requested all our partners to comply with the WHO and Government regulations.

For more information, please look at our risk assessment on Coronavirus:

Prestolite Electric Limited – UK Tax Strategy

Prestolite Electric Limited (PEL) is a manufacturer and supplier of alternators, starters, other electrical equipment and services to the transportation, industrial and military industry.  Our immediate parent company Prestolite Incorporated (‘Prestolite Inc.’) is based in the US.  Our ultimate parent company Broad-Ocean Motor Co. Limited is based in China and provides global customers with safe, environmentally friendly and efficient motor drive system solutions.

PEL is a small component of the much larger multinational Broad-Ocean group.  Our UK tax strategy is one of straight forward compliance.  We are risk averse on tax matters and pride ourselves in meeting our obligations.

Tax governance and risk management

The managing director directly oversees the tax affairs of the company.  This includes the review and approval of all tax returns and payments and raising tax issues with the wider Board as required.

As there a number of common directorships between Prestolite Electric Limited, our immediate parent Prestolite Inc. and Broad-Ocean Motor Co. Limited tax activity is coordinated and intercompany transactions are carried out on an arm’s length basis.

Compliance activities are performed by the financial controller and outsource providers.  Tax risk is therefore managed by the use of reputable third party providers and ensuring staff are appropriately trained and qualified.

We also consult with advisors to ensure we are up to date with changes to tax legislation and are able to identify and manage any associated risks.


 As a small business the Board of directors has close involvement in all commercial decision making and ensure tax aspects are appropriately considered.

We seek to predict and understand the tax implications of our business decisions but we do not pursue aggressive tax planning or avoidance activity.

HMRC relationship

We have a strong track record of compliance and as such have limited interaction with HMRC.

Communication with HMRC is typically limited to administrative queries.

If required, we will respond to any information requests by HMRC in a transparent and timely manner.

This UK tax strategy statement has been approved by Prestolite Electric Limited’s Board of Directors and its publication is regarded as complying with paragraph 22(2), Part 2 of Schedule 19 of the 2016 Finance Act in respect of the year ended 31 December 2022.
