There was good news for commercial fleet operators in the Budget, with a freeze in fuel duty, an extension to the furlough scheme and a freeze in VED for HGVs.
PVS Group has released a new white paper, ‘PVS Talks…WLTP Type Approval for LCVs’, to give fleet decision-makers WLTP and VED insight.
BVLRA has welcomed the Government’s decision not to introduce an emissions-based regime for van vehicle excise duty until at least April 2021.
Plans to reform VED for vans should be postponed until there is a greater supply of affordable low emission vehicles, according to the BVRLA and the FSB.
The Government is being warned a CO2-based road tax regime for vans will fail to deliver greener vehicle choices and could encourage the wrong buying behaviour.
Government wants vehicle excise duty (VED) for vans to be graduated according to their emissions in the same way it is for cars.
