Fleet decision-makers are being urged to attend ACFO’s spring seminar next Wednesday (March 27) to gain clarity on a number of topical issues.
The event will cover the future direction of company car benefit-in-kind tax, Brexit and travelling in the European Union following the UK’s departure with or without a deal, fleet funding and the rise of personal contract hire, the continuing impact of WLTP and RDE2 emissions standard, and clean air zones.
The event, entitled ‘Another Year of Evolution’ will take place at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire, starting at 9.30am (registration begins at 8.30am).
John Pryor, chairman of ACFO, said: ““In almost 30 years as a fleet manager I cannot think of as many issues that fleet operators have had to tackle simultaneously.
“ACFO believes the seminar provides a unique occasion at which decision-makers can gain valuable insight and have all their questions answered.”
Seminar speakers and the issues they will tackle are:
- Mike Moore, tax director at professional services firm Deloitte, will deliver a financial fleet review including an insight into future taxation changes.

- Malcom Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau; Oliver Waring, managing director of Reflex Vehicle Hire; Len Benson, associate director/motor manager at insurance broker Peter Lole & Co and an ACFO member; and Fiona Kail, national account manager, at business travel experts Clarity, will tackle a range of Brexit issues - driving licences, vehicle hire, insurance and Green Cards and travel respectively.
- Beth Davies, product manager - manufacturers, at automotive industry data provider CAP HPI, will deliver the latest insight into WLTP and RDE2 and how the vehicle emissions testing regime is impacting on new company car choice lists and vehicle supply.
- Tim Anderson, senior transport advice manager, at the Energy Saving Trust, will provide guidance on actions that fleet decision-makers can take to ensure compliance with emerging Clean Air Zone regulations.
- Nora Leggett, head of member services at the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, will provide guidance and explain what has changed and why as the organisation gears up to launch its updated industry standard ‘Fair Wear and Tear Guide: Cars’.
