Fleet Evolution runs free consultancy offer

Fleet Evolution is offering free consultancy to small businesses for a limited period to help them navigate through the current maze of confusing legislation surrounding company cars.

The firm says fleets are wrestling with the impact of the new Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) and getting to grips with changes brought in by the Government last April under OpRA which affect salary sacrifice schemes. In response, Fleet Evolution is offering free consultancy throughout August and September to help small businesses make the right policy decisions for their fleets.

Fleet Evolution managing director, Andrew Leech said: “Many small businesses we have spoken to are unaware that the new WLTP tests will apply to all new car production from September and that, as a consequence, their drivers could face increases in their CO2 emissions-linked company car tax bills because of the discrepancies between the old and the new tests.”

The lack of knowledge around emissions testing was similar to that with the new OpRA rules governing salary sacrifice car schemes, he said.

“There seems general confusion over what OpRA means for salary sacrifice and we typically find current policies woefully out of date,” added Leech.

Fleets looking for free and impartial advice on setting the most appropriate fleet policy can take up the offer by emailing the company here.
