Welcome note from Sue RobinsonBack

sue-robinsonDear Colleagues,

The NFDA, the CBI, the EEF, the IOD, Charity finance group and the IMI  have all called on the Government to delay the apprenticeship levy. Considering the short term economic uncertainty that the country is likely to face, we feel that it might not be onerous for dealers to bear with this additional cost at the current time.  We will continue to lobby the Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP and Government on the issue to safeguard NFDA members’ interests.  We will keep updated.

Trading Standards have recently brought prosecutions against dealers for selling ex-rental vehicles without informing customers of the fact.  This is a breach of the 2008 Consumer Protection Regulations (CPRs) and trading standards guidance.  To help members understand these rules and their obligation we have included a guidance note in the newsletter.

Social media is now an essential tool to communicate with customers, but many companies are still learning how to make the most of their customer data to drive sales and brand awareness.  Following a highly successful three-month campaign Trusted Dealers would like to share five insights you might find helpful in this week’s news.

The NFDA Autumn Ball is fast approaching – Saturday 8 October at The Grove Resort in Hertfordshire.  To book your tickets please contact louise.woods@rmif.co.uk.

Finally, the NFDA is your trade body and here to help and advise you on regulatory and operational issues that affect your business.  Please do contact us on the NFDA helpline 01788 538303 if you need any assistance or if you have any views on the news.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
