Looking at buying a Ford Ranger...


I'm looking at buying a Ford Ranger 2.2 TDCi for use with my work. As I will be purchasing the vehicle will it need to be taxed and insured privately even though I would be using it to assist myself with work? If I can buy the vehicle personally, will a company then be penalised with benefit in kind even though I have bought it?
