HM Treasury recently sought industry views on Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) to help inform a move towards a more dynamic system and to understand how VED can support road transport decarbonisation.
The BVRLA engaged extensively with members through working groups, committees and a member survey and also helped organise a roundtable with senior HM Treasury officials.
The BVRLA’s response called for:
- A single rate for a car linked to its CO2 emissions
- Any changes to VED structure to be cost neutral for fleets
- Five-year foresight on future rates
- The Government to work more closely with industry in considering the next generation of motoring taxes for a zero-emission economy
- Tax officials and policymakers to improve their understanding of the IT constraints and challenges faced by BVRLA members and the DVLA
