Fleet tax manifesto to be launched by AFP

The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) is launching a tax manifesto that will guide future campaigning of the trade and training body.

The AFP Tax Manifesto features around a dozen areas in which the organisation believes that change or definition is needed to enable businesses to move forward with their fleet and mobility plans.

It will be launched by the AFP at a new webinar being held next month.

Chair Paul Hollick explained: “Part of the thinking behind the formation of the AFP just over a year ago was the need for a campaigning fleet industry organisation and this is one of the first signs of that intention.

“We’ve been having wide-ranging discussions with our members and other interested parties about areas where we believe that the taxation of fleets and mobility needs changing or developing in order to create effective incentives, greater certainty and more fairness.

“The results are contained in this document. We plan to use it as the foundation for conversations with the government and HMRC in the coming months and years.”

The ‘Tax and the Company Car’ webinar begins starts at 9.30am on April 14 and is expected to last around 60 minutes including a question and answer session.

Further details and registration are available at www.theafp.co.uk. The AFP Tax Manifesto will be made available publicly as soon as the webinar.

The AFP was formed in March, 2021, from the merging of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) and the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM).
