Chip and Pin

With steep increases in UK company car taxes just around the corner, there is only one question the fleet industry should ask about the government’s BIK strategy. How did it go so disastrously wrong?

But with no single fuel type or drivetrain technology ready to fill the growing vacuum created by the reduction in new diesel vehicles being deployed within fleets, a multi-fuel future is looking increasingly likely.

What young people’s expectations tell us about the future of fleet and mobilityThe Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

Fewer 17-20 year olds passing the driving test won’t come as news to many people. But new research suggests that the trend will not only continue but could accelerate as driving moves beyond the expectations of more young people. Researchers from the universities of Oxford and the

UK pump prices for diesel and petrol climbed by 20% last year and have continued to rise slowly but steadily throughout 2017. And the e

TMC welcomes Budget response to recommendation on flat-rate travel and subsistence claimsThe Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

Paul Hollick, managing director of TMC, has welcomed yesterday’s Budget promise that HMRC will return to a less-cumbersome regime for settling travel and subsistence claims.
