Budget Day - Fleet News offers in-depth analysis

ON Wednesday Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown will deliver what could be the final Budget for this parliament.

While much of the national spotlight will be dedicated on the success of his battle to juggle the need to meet government spending plans, minimise tax increases and keep borrowing under control Fleet News will be delving into the small print to illuminate changes to laws governing company vehicles.

Speculation is rife that Brown will target a number of areas of the fleet industry:

  • the 2005/06 company car tax charge
  • new tax regime for company vans
  • vehicle excise duty – price hikes or could it be scrapped?
  • change to the duty rates on alternative fuels

    On Budget day Fleet NewsNet will provide the key points affecting fleet decision-makers.

    The March 25 issue of Fleet News will provide unparalleled analysis of the key points, plus industry reaction.
