The BVRLA is calling for a fair taxation regime that gives foresight to fleets and their customers
- The Government must work with industry to review VED and make it fair for fleet.
- The Plug-in Grant and low BiK rates for BEVs must be maintained for as long as they are needed for the transition.
- Foresight of BiK rates must be set out for at least five years.
- Government should zero the VAT on the hire of BEVs and PHEVs through rental or car clubs.
- Leasing and rental must not be excluded from super deductions and first year allowances for ZEVs.
- Reform the AER to work for fleets and their customers.
- Reform BiK so that it does not inhibit new mobility options and behaviour change.
- Work with industry to develop a road map for the future of motoring taxes and any move to road pricing.
- Motoring taxes – we continue to engage regularly and extensively with HM Treasury around the need for certainty in Benefit-in-Kind tax rates and fairness in VED and work with trade associations like the CBI who support these asks.
- Super deductions – have worked with the FLA and CBI to challenge leasing and rental’s exclusion from the super deduction, we have met with senior officials from HMT and HMRC to make our case.
- VAT and electricity for EVs – following member requests we received clarification from HMRC around VAT treatment and EV charging, this guidance is not sufficient and additional details are expected.
- VAT and end of termination charges – the BVRLA continues to engage extensively with HMRC on this issue, following our latest submission we expect new draft guidance from HMRC to be shared in the coming weeks.
- Benefit-in-Kind taxation and shared mobility – working with members to develop a robust position around BiK and shared mobility
