Federation of Small Businesses joins forces with the BVRLA

The BVRLA and the Federation of Small Businesses have today issued a joint statement urging government to rethink its plans for van vehicle excise duty (VED), which both organisations believe will be harmful to small business van users.

In its response to a recent government consultation on van VED reform, the BVRLA welcomed the aim to see an increase in the take-up of low-emission vans but flagged concerns around the limited availability of vans currently on the market.

Those that are available are far more expensive than their Euro VI diesel equivalents.

The Economic Impact of the Motor Vehicle Leasing and Rental Sector

The motor vehicle leasing and rental industry accounts for more than one in every seven vehicles on the UK’s roads, solving transport issues for businesses and individuals alike.

The opportunity to lease and rent vehicles offers firms and households access to modern, fuel-efficient vehicles without the strain of upfront capital expenditure. But beyond the benefits enjoyed by its customers, the industry also contributes a huge amount to the national economy, as outlined in this report.



BVRLA Position Papers summarise policy asks

The BVRLA has produced a set of Position Papers to provide an at-a-glance overview of the association’s view and desired intentions on a range of priority issues including Air Quality, Motor Finance, Taxation and Vehicle Terrorism.

These one-page documents contain a brief summary of the issue and make clear what we are asking of policymakers on behalf of the sector.

They also include ‘Top 5 key messages’ and some suggestions of how members can help to support our activities as we work to protect the interests of the vehicle rental and leasing sectors.

Early introduction of the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will punish fleets

The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association is disappointed that commercial vehicle operators have not been given enough time to prepare for the early introduction of the Central London Low Ultra Low Emission Zone on 8 April 2019.

Commenting on the Mayor’s announcement BVRLA Chief Executive Gerry Keaney said:

“The ULEZ will now come into effect seventeen months earlier than originally planned and many commercial fleet operators will face a big financial challenge in trying to upgrade their vehicles ahead of schedule.
