Company car tax changes and clean air zones under focus at ACFO spring seminar

Crucial fleet issues including future company car taxation, the impact of Brexit and the introduction of clean air zones are to come under focus at ACFO’s spring seminar later this month.

The Spring Statement brought no details in terms of actual tax changes going forward, in particular for Company Car Tax (CCT) rates

The seminar will provide guidance on any company car tax changes referred to in the Spring Statement

Dubbed ‘Another Year of Evolution’, the seminar is being held on Wednesday 27 March at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire, starting at 9.30am and will expert speakers address all the big issues for fleets.

Vitally, the seminar is being held just days after the Government’s Spring Statement (13 March) in which the chancellor is expected to indicate the ‘direction of travel’ on any changes to the existing company car Benefit-in-Kind tax and Vehicle Excise Duty regimes from April 2020. Mike Moore, tax director at professional services firm Deloitte, who leads its national car and mobility consulting team, will analyse the statement and the impact of any changes on fleets.

Meanwhile Lex Autolease will deliver its views on marketplace developments now and in the future and what actions fleets should take.

And, with the seminar taking place just two days before the UK is due to leave the European Union, the impact of Brexit will be agenda-topping. Speakers advising on what Brexit means for fleets in terms of driving licences, vehicle hire, insurance/Green Cards and travel will comprise: Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau; Oliver Waring, managing director of Reflex Vehicle Hire; Len Benson, associate director/motor manager at insurance broker Peter Lole & Co and an ACFO member; and another speaker to be confirmed.

The event will also bring a latest insight into WLTP and the related RDE2 standard from Beth Davies, product manager – manufacturers, at Cap HPI, while the subject of the London ULEZ and clean air zones and what fleets can do to ensure compliance will be covered by Tim Anderson, senior transport advice manager at the Energy Saving Trust.

Additional presentations will include guidance from the BVRLA on imminent updates to its ‘Fair Wear and Tear Guide: Cars’ industry standard while Jaguar Land Rover will give a business update, news on its latest model range and vehicle powertrain developments. And Paul Hollick, chairman of ICFM, will provide a look at the organisation’s current programme.
