Emergency budget: industry comment

Paul Ashton, managing director, Equalease:

“In a very real sense, the most important thing about this Budget is that it has happened. Since the Election, there has been a general feeling in the fleet sector and the wider business community that perhaps major decisions needed to be deferred until the coalition Government made its economic plans clear. It has now done so. There are some tough measures heading our way - especially the 20% VAT increase - but at least we now know what they are and can get on with working in the business environment that they create.”
