Fleets demand guidance on C02 emissions

DECISION-makers are demanding that the Government gives them clear guidance on how it views CO2 emissions and how it will impact on company car tax in the future.

At the regional meeting of the South West and Wales branch of the Association of Car Fleet Operators, managers said they were now choosing vehicles on three or four-year policies which will be taxed under the new system without being sure what the new system will be.

Angry managers said the Government had announced no definite plans for company car taxation for 2002 and they were being forced to second-guess what lay ahead, hoping they were not making costly mistakes. Branch chairman Russ Bailey said: 'This proposal for company car tax to be based on emissions is only a proposal - the Government has not agreed it, yet we are having to make decisions on it. We need some definite guidance from the Government on what it is trying to achieve and what it is going to cost us.'
