BVRLA News The bimonthly newsletter of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association

New Rental Code of Conduct launched The BVRLA launched its revised Rental Code of Conduct last month, the first of five sector-specific codes clarifying standards for the BVRLA’s different types of member. This latest rental-specific version of the code fits the modern vehicle hire environment and the association’s increasingly diverse membership. It is clearer and more detailed about the standards that are required at the vital customer interaction stages of any rental transaction. The remaining four codes: Rental Broker, Leasing and Fleet Management, Leasing Broker and Commercial Vehicle, will be launched later in 2015. All five codes will be underpinned by a new governance regime, to be developed during 2015 and implemented in 2016. In a bid to improve transparency within the industry, the new codes are clearer and more prescriptive about the standards members must adhere to.

The new codes and governance regime also incorporate the specific input of key industry regulators including the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Each Code is expected to satisfy the EU’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Directive. As the new codes are more prescriptive and customer facing, and have been designed with the help of key industry regulators, they will provide even more of a quality benchmark for BVRLA members. The BVRLA will be sending out a series of newsletters, providing tips and guidance on the new codes. Members will also have the opportunity to hear more about the revised codes and put questions to BVRLA staff at a series of regional events taking place throughout 2015. u For more details about the Rental Code and the related events, visit www.bvrla. co.uk/advice/guidance/rental-code

Comment By Gerry Keaney, BVRLA Chief Executive

More joined-up thinking needed on the issue of intelligent mobility There is a growing sense within Whitehall that autonomous and connected vehicles have the potential to deliver huge societal and economic benefits for the UK. Last Autumn, I gave evidence to the House of Commons Transport Committee and highlighted how the government has not yet grasped the opportunities presented by ‘Intelligent Mobility’. The Transport Committee clearly shares these concerns as many of our recommendations were taken up by this influential group of MPs in their recently published Motoring of the Future report. Their support, as well as the £100m of funding announced in the recent Budget, comes at just the right time to provide some much-needed impetus into this vital work. There is a lot at stake.

vehicles, big data and smart motorways are just some of the intelligent mobility technologies that are beginning to have a major impact on the road transport sector. As the buyers of over half of all the cars, vans and trucks sold in the UK every year, the fleet market is a crucial early adopter of autonomous and connected vehicle technology. You operate the newest, cleanest and safest vehicles out there. With the right government support, the potential to reduce harmful emissions, road casualties and congestion is huge. We have produced a high-level blueprint for what the Government needs to do – the Fleet Industry Manifesto. It’s currently being digested by a range of senior policymakers in the main parties. I trust they are paying attention.

u

We are in the early stages of a motoring revolution, with technology set to transform the way we use cars, vans, trucks and buses. Connected cars, driverless

Budget sets out BIK rates for 2020 It was a hit and miss Budget for company car drivers as Chancellor George Osborne announced some changes to the way company car benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates will increase from 2019. There was good news for drivers of ultra-low emission cars (75g/km CO2 and under) who will see a slowdown in the rate of increase previously announced. This was in contrast to the outlook for drivers of any vehicle emitting more than 76g/km CO2, who will see the percentage of their company car’s list price (P11D price)

that is liable for tax rise by three percentage points each year, instead of two. The Treasury estimates that this will cost the sector an extra £340m each year. Commenting on Budget 2015, BVRLA Director of Policy and Membership Jay Parmar said: “We’re encouraged that the government has responded to our calls to reduce the pace of company car tax increases on ultra low-emission vehicles in 2019/20. Sadly, George Osborne has chosen not to go further, and the government now runs the serious risk of reducing the tax incentive between ultra low-emission vehicles and higher-polluting models.”

Other announcements from the Budget include a £100m fund for driverless cars and changes to the fuel benefit charge. Government departments have also been told that they must consider car sharing alongside more traditional transport options. The BVRLA welcomed the decision to freeze fuel duty and the Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) rates for HGVs. The Government is also cutting Corporation Tax to 20% from 1 April 2016 to stimulate growth. However, the Enhanced Capital Allowances for zero-emission goods vehicles that were announced by the Chancellor are unavailable to rental and leasing companies. u For members’ convenience, the BVRLA has produced a full Budget summary, outlining its impacts on the vehicle rental and leasing sector. This is available to read online at www.bvrla.co.uk/Budget-2015. For more information on any announcements from the Budget, or to discuss the BVRLA’s campaigning, please contact Patrick Cusworth:

Members try counterpart replacement A second wave of BVRLA rental members has now signed up to trial the DVLA’s new Share My Driver Licence service. The beta version of the system went live in March with more than a dozen BVRLA members now participating and providing staff and customer feedback to the agency. Share My Driver Licence is one of three licence checking options that will be available to rental companies following the abolition of the driver licence paper counterpart on 8 June

4

and it is the only one that is free of charge. The service requires a hirer to view their driver licence details via the www.gov.uk website, using their National Insurance Number, Driver Number and Post Code. They can then print off a copy of their driver record as a PDF and take it to the rental desk. The rental company can accept this copy at face-value, or ask for additional authentication by obtaining an online view of the driver record, which the hirer can provide via an access code. The BVRLA website provides regular

updates on the abolition of the counterpart and also has details of the other licence checking services that will be available to members. Members should not expect to hear from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency about the abolition in the run up to the general election, as the agency is curbing its communications. u To access the DVLA’s webpage with marketing materials and advice, visit: http://dvla.dft.gov.uk/dvla-aoctoolkit.html

VVR & V5C now live The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has launched its online View Vehicle Record (VVR) and V5C on Demand systems.

HGV Levy: The Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) levy on foreign hauliers has generated £44 million in its first year of operation. Foreign truck operators have purchased more than 1.8 million levies, a time-based charge that ensures all HGVs over 12 tonnes contribute towards their use of UK roads. Enforcement agencies have issued some 2,500 fixed penalty notices and collected fines of over £750,000 for nonlevy payment in the past year.

Confidence tempered by used values in Q4 2014 The latest BVRLA Quarterly Leasing Survey for Q4 2014 reveals that members’ fleet sizes are growing and emissions are still falling, but there’s concerns over used car prices. Concerns over used car prices have tempered business confidence. While 75% of leasing companies surveyed expect fleet sizes to grow in the next six months, on balance, 88% reckon used car values will fall. This represents a stark contrast from the Q3 2014 survey, when 61% of survey respondents were predicting used car values to fall.

Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4

2013 2014 2014 2014 2014

BVRLA leasing members’ fleet sizes continue to grow, and emissions are falling faster than the national averages (see table). Members’ new registrations in Q4 emitted just 114.7g/km CO2 on average – 7% lower than the average for all new UK registrations in that time. u BVRLA Research & Insight Manager Hazel Collier can provide more info:

Companies registered on the DVLA’s fleet scheme will now have the opportunity to access the VVR service. Since January, the DVLA has been engaging with fleets to gauge interest and so far, 50% of fleets contacted have provided administrator details. In order to access the VVR service, fleet operators must follow a secure log in process. Companies will only have access to their fleet data, which replicates that shown on the V5C vehicle registration certificate. Users of the VVR service can then determine if they wish to ‘opt in’ to the V5C on Demand scheme. Opting in to this service means any vehicles that are newly registered to that fleet will not be issued with a V5C. If vehicle record changes are required, a new V5C will not be issued following the update. All other V5Cs for existing vehicles will need to be kept. VVR can be used whether or not a member opts in to the V5C On Demand service. The benefit of using these services is that members will have free 24/7 access to fleet vehicle data. Choosing not to receive a V5C also opens up the potential for further administration and storage cost savings. u If you have 50 or more vehicles in your fleet and want to join the DVLA’s fleet scheme, or if you’re on the scheme and wish to sign up to the VVR service, please contact the DVLA directly: Contact DVLA Vehicle Enquiries 0300 083 0016 fleetshd@dvla.gsi.gov.uk

DVLA reacts to review The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has spelt out how it will work with its parent body, the Department for Transport (DfT). The Framework Agreement builds on the recommendations made in Mary Reilly’s 2014 review, which recommended changes to DVLA’s governance and management structures. The Framework details several structural changes which will enable the DVLA to work more constructively with the DfT. The agreement details how the DVLA will take forward its statutory responsibilities for both vehicles and individual drivers. For vehicles, the Agency will continue to authorise the licencing and registration of vehicles, collection and enforcement of Vehicle Excise Duty, and the issuing of registration documents. The DVLA will also retain a series of secondary responsibilities, including the issue and revocation of registration numbers, setting

levels of VED, dealing with Statutory Off Road Notifications [SORN], and releasing and selling information. For drivers, the DVLA will take responsibility for all matters relating to licences; including issuance, renewal, and restriction; as well as revoking licences from drivers who obtain six penalty points within two years of passing their first test. The agency will also have responsibility for recording endorsements, prosecuting drivers, fraud and/ or false declarations, withholding material information, and legislation governing visitors in Great Britain. The DVLA will now obtain the DfT’s written approval before changing or exceeding its annual approved budget. In addition, authorisation for funding new projects will be made on a three-tier level, depending on the cost of the project, with DfT approving projects requiring more than £100m. u The full framework document can be read online at http://bitly.com/ DVLAframework.

New name for transport organisations The Highways Agency has become a governmentowned company and adopted a new name – Highways England. The organisation is wholly owned by the Secretary of State for Transport and has a role to operate, maintain and modernise the strategic road network in line with the Road Investment Strategy. It has published its delivery plan, which sets out how it will deliver its strategic outcomes and measure success between now and 2020. Its performance is now being scrutinised by Transport Focus – the new name for Passenger Focus. Previously, this organisation represented the interests of Britain’s rail, bus, coach and tram passengers. It now represents the interests of road users. Both name changes took effect from 1 April 2015.

SMMT’s diesel campaign

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is challenging what it calls the “increasing demonisation of diesel”. The organisation has launched the campaign as it is concerned that negativity about diesels could deter motorists from considering the most modern and cleanest diesel cars as their next purchase. u More information about the new campaign can be found online at www.dieselfacts.co.uk

Agreement on Dartford

The BVRLA is currently negotiating with Highways England to agree a memorandum of understanding concerning members’ use of the Dartford Crossing. The memorandum would address a series of operational difficulties that members have experienced since the barriers went cash-less in 2014. It would streamline the process of disclosing the details of a hire or lease driver liable for the PCN, which in turn would reduce the burden when members make representations to transfer liability. The BVRLA will update members in due course. u

Lease accounting news

The BVRLA has met with the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to discuss the upcoming lease accounting standards. The IASB is developing a new International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS), which will require companies to bring leases onto the balance sheet. The IASB is finalising its new accounting model for leases, and the IFRS will be issued later this year. u To read the practical implications of the IFRS, visit www.bvrla.co.uk/ sites/default/files/documents/ifrs_ practical_implications.pdf

Reduced fees for forums It’s not too late to sign up to attend the BVRLA’s forums. The joining fee to attend both the Residual Value & Remarketing (RVR) and Technical & Operational Management (TOM) forums is usually £220+ VAT, which allows two people to attend three forums per year. With a few places remaining for 2015, the BVRLA is now offering a reduced rate of £150+ VAT. Topics discussed at the last TOM forum centered on the DVLA, the use of AdBlue as well as concerns surrounding type approval. Attendee George Reid from Fleethire said: “What I like about the TOM Forums is that they introduce industry topics for discussion which most of the time we would not get involved in. The sessions are always very informative and the forums are important dates in my calendar.” February’s Residual Value & Remarketing Forum focussed on electric vehicles and the state

of the used vehicle market. The forum regularly helps attendees determine residual value risk, including pre-procurement, best practice in vehicle collection and vehicle resale. The managing director of JCT 600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, Andrew Mann said: “The BVRLA’s last Residual Value and Remarketing Forum provided useful information from experts in their field to help us with our respective businesses.” The next TOM forum takes place in Milton Keynes on 4 June 2015.
