Small businesses with five to 50 vehicles can find out how to reduce their tax burden at the first Small Fleets Conference on October 8, 2014 at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon.
Fleet News and sister publication Driving Business are teaming up with BMW and leading industry suppliers to present the conference, which will be beneficial for staff working in fleet and transport, HR and facilities, environment, operations, finance and purchasing as well as fleet consultants and policy or benefits advisers.
Guest speakers include Andrew Wetters, senior policy advisor for the workplace transport team at the Health and Safety Executive, tax expert David Rawlings, director at BCF Wessex Consultants, and Jay Parmer, director of policy and membership at the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA).
Wetters will outline the latest guidance from the HSE and Department for Transport, as well as the role of management in work-related road safety.
Rawlings will discuss taxation in relation to company vehicles, giving the audience insight into how much tax they should be paying and what decisions they can make regarding their vehicles that could reduce the tax burden on drivers and the company.
Parmar will offer insight about how vehicle fleets are affected by regulation and the factors you need to consider in order to comply with the law.
The conference will be chaired by former chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) Christopher Macgowan.
The event’s associate sponsors include the RAC, Fleetmatics, Halfords Autocentre and LeasePlan Go.
