##Sign post--left##

Fleet managers will be given an insight from the experts on the latest developments in the fleet industry at Fleet News Drive, including changes to VAT rules, Block Exemption, Government transport policies, plus the influence the new emissions-based tax system will have on fleet choices.

The first of the Fleet News' ride and drive events takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 9-10) at Brands Hatch, followed by a second event on April 30 and May 1 at Oulton Park.

Together with offering the perfect environment for testing the latest manufacturer offerings the programme of events includes a series of seminars by Andersen.

The seminar programme:

Tax and accounting – an analysis of the latest issues, including the impact of the Green Budget announcements, as well as details on the European Court of Justice ruling on VAT on employee expenses, and the planned accounting regulations for the disclosure of a company's lease commitments.

European aspects - an insight into the key issues surrounding the Block exemption regulations, with focussed analysis drawn from the Andersen report to the Commission. The emphasis will be on tax and legal aspects.

Trends - an update attendees on the latest shifts in the market, from the growing popularity of diesel to the challenge of uncertain residuals, plus a review of the Government's transport policy, and the implications for future environmentally-based tax policies.

Company cars - an analysis of the impact of the new emissions-based taxation system, and its influence on fleet choices – plus an insight into the latest innovations in fleet management.

Private fuel - how does provision of this forgotten benefit affect both the business, and the employees? A summary of the issues, and a potential solution.

Plus - an up-to-the-minute commentary on Budget (& Pre-Budget) announcements, and other industry developments as appropriate.
