NFDA POLICY UPDATE – CONSULTATION PAPER RESPONSESBack

Gov.ukConsultation Paper Responses

This week , the NFDA Policy Department has submitted responses to consultations published by the Department for Transport and HM Revenue & Customs.

As such, we thought we would provide you a quick summary of the consultations and the responses.

Consultations are a key tool used in the NFDA’s lobbying strategy and provide a platform to voice member concerns and legislative issues brought to our attention.

Department for Transport

The DfT has recently published a series of consultation documents which are seeking advice on reforms set to modernise speed limits for HGV vehicles.

The NFDA has now submitted a response to one of the latest consultation documents, which looks at increasing the current speed limit for HGV vehicles over 7.5 tonnes on dual carriageways.

The document consists of eight key questions which will help to aid the DfT’s decision on increasing the speed limit. Throughout the submission, the NFDA have emphasised that it believes the top offered limit of 60mph should be adopted.

Full document title: Examining the Speed Limit for HGVs over 7.5 tonnes on Dual Carriageway Roads: A Consultation Document.

HM Revenue & Customs

HMRC have released four consultations which look to review and change taxation for employee expenses and benefits.

In the 2014 Budget Statement, George Osborne announced that a simplification of administration was required of employee Benefits in Kind (‘BiKs) and this addressed within the four consultations.

The NFDA has responded to the following consultation; Real time collection of tax on benefits in kind and expenses through voluntary payrolling.

The NFDA have emphasised that a voluntary payrolling framework should be adopted but this must have an element of flexibility, for example, specific employee exclusions.

HM Revenue & Customs

HMRC have also issued a consultation on VAT relief on substantially and permanently adapted motor vehicles for disabled wheelchair users.

The NFDA has agreed that reform must take place in this area of VAT relief as the current system is open to manipulation and is often complex and difficult for dealers to use. The NFDA has again emphasised the need for database of all zero-rated disabled adaption sales.
