Who is liable on company car repairs

I'm currently updating some company policies and just spotted that in our company vehicle policy, if a company vehicle or pool vehicle is involved in an accident or an event that depreciates the value of the vehicle, the driver is liable to pay a waiver of £300 or the repair cost (whichever is lower). I was under the impression that the Company was responsible for all maintenance and repairs unless they can prove intentional damage or serious negligence?
Or is this wrong and your employer can bill you for anything, such as dings made by someone else in a car park chipping paint, causing depreciation of the vehicle for example?

So it's really the at fault accidents and non fault accidents with no third party identified where the payment comes in to play. Which is why I used to park mine at the far end of car parks away from anyone else.
