The start point for the best source of fleet information

Updated manifesto published by AFP

Date: 29 May 2024   |   Author: Sean Keywood

The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) has updated its Tax and Regulation Manifesto ahead of the General Election.

The document, first published in 2021, now includes 24 measures.

Many of the updates are related to electric van adoption, however those that relate to car fleets include the publication of new BIK tax tables up to 2030, fiscal support to make EVs more attractive to the used market, and improvements to EV charging infrastructure, including regulatory and fiscal support for accessible, affordable and fit-for-purpose chargepoints.

AFP chair Paul Hollick said: "Since the pandemic, the problems that fleets are facing seem to have multiplied, largely as we grapple with the implications of electrification and other zero emissions initiatives. 

"Within our Future Mobility Committee and across our membership, we have been discussing the kind of help we would like to see from government and it is fortuitous that we are publishing this manifesto just as the General Election gets underway.

"Whoever wins power, we hope to work with them to help resolve these many issues, and the document represents the AFP's core thinking about what needs to be done. It is designed to focus on practical ideas, ranging from quite small detail alterations to major strategic shifts, around which we believe that change or definition is required to enable businesses to move forward with their fleet and mobility plans faster and more effectively."
