The indispensable guide for UK fleet lessors, and in fact any British organisation that runs company cars, has just had its most recent update – the sixth edition of Company Car and Van Tax written by Colin Tourick.

In addition to being a complete update on detailed tax rules, rates and allowances, contents range from car sharing to the more complex world of salary sacrifice schemes.

Tourick explained that the book is based on the Budget presented to Parliament by the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer on 16 March 2016.

Comment on the VW diesel scandal

Quote published in Asset Finance International

Colin Tourick, co-founder of International Auto Finance Network and founder of Colin Tourick & Associates said:

“This is the first revelation that could substantially dent VW’s fleet sales. If company car drivers think that VW’s CO2 emission figures are understated it might make them opt for another manufacturer when choosing their next company car. VW needs to clarify this issue rapidly to avoid any damage to sales”.
