ACFO seminar to help fleets act on current industry issues
ACFO is to run a ‘State of the Nation’ autumn seminar to brief decision-makers on key fleet issues and what actions they need to take.
Intended to separate fact from fiction, the event – taking place on 21 September at Mini’s plant in Oxford – will see issues such as the latest tax issues come under the microscope including the Government’s consultation on the taxation of Benefits-in-Kind and employee expenses that includes an examination of Approved Mileage Allowance Payments.
Industry experts will also provide an update on the future viability of both car salary sacrifice and car or cash allowance programmes following tax changes that came into effect on 6 April as well as developments that can be expected in the Autumn Budget including possible changes to the tax treatment of diesel vehicles.
Other issues under focus include the new Worldwide harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), the 2019 lease accounting standards changes, the Dart Charge, Brexit and the move by the DVLA to increasingly digitalise fleet services.
Speakers include ACFO’s Caroline Sandall, Jay Parmar of the BVRLA, Alison Avo from the DVLA, Sarah Green of Highways England, Alphabet’s Simon Car and Steve Oliver from the corporate sales division at BMW.
The seminar, which starts at 9.30am and finishes at 1.30pm, with an optional tour of Plant Oxford, will conclude with a panel discussion.
