ACFO to put Budget under spotlight in State of the Nation 2 seminar

Budget briefcase

Fleet decision-makers’ organisation ACFO will analyse what the Budget means to fleets in its autumn seminar.

The event, called State of the Nation 2, will take place on Friday, November 2 – four days after the Budget - at the Charlton House, Luton Road, Luton, offices of seminar sponsor Vauxhall.

It will aim to provide fleet decision-makers with clarity around all the key fleet-related Budget announcements, while also delivering updates on the introduction of WLTP, the future introduction across the UK of clean air zones (CAZs) and the impact of Brexit on fleets and the wider automotive industry.

John Pryor, chairman of ACFO, said: “The anticipated Budget tax announcements relating to the company car are fleet operator critical and ACFO’s seminar will provide delegates with one of the very first opportunities to gain a deep understanding of the implications for them and their company car drivers.

“Given the unprecedented volume of change and uncertainty continuing to engulf fleets, it is a seminar that fleet decision-makers cannot afford to miss. 

“Delegates will, we hope, leave the event fully briefed on all issues and with the facts so they can implement changes to policies and procedures.”

Speakers at the seminar include:

  • Dan Rees, associate director, car and mobility consulting at Deloitte
  • Tim Anderson, senior transport manager at Energy Saving Trust
  • Jay Parmar, director of policy and membership at the BVRLA (British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association)
  • A representative of automotive industry data providers Cap HPI
  • Paul Hollick, chairman of the ICFM

The seminar starts at 9.30am (registration is from 8.30am) and closes at 1.30pm. The event will include question and answer sessions. 

To book a place at the seminar email Fiona Spencer at info@acfo.orgor go to www.acfo.org.

  • Fleet News has joined forces with ACFO and the BVRLA to launch a Fleet Budget Manifesto which urges Chancellor Phillip Hammond to address key fleet concerns in the Budget.
