Retailers urged to join tax consultation

  13 February 2019

Retailers have a week to add their voices to a Government vehicle tax consultation closing next Sunday amid concerns HMRC isn’t getting enough response from the industry to convince it to adjust VED and company car tax bands to account for higher WLTP emissions figures expected to rise by at least 10-20% when they are introduced for CO2-based taxes from April 2020.

The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association is spearheading an industry-wide campaign to encourage as many responses as possible, focusing on the environmental and economic issues around CO2-based taxation, and the impact of pushing consumers and fleets into older and less environmentally friendly cars.

The BVRLA has put together an action sheet. Click here.
