EVs remain broker focus after Autumn Statement
The Chancellor’s Autumn Statement gets analysed from every angle in this edition of Broker News (22 November 2022). But with the dust settling, and the company car tax benefit in kind laid out until end of FY 2028, business leasing is still the choice for fleets, and salary sacrifice remains viable for those employees that don’t qualify for a company car.
In the meantime, Alphabet has introduced tactical sales for its Partner brokers – which will be welcomed by those brokers looking for payout as large order banks only gradually start to reduce with greater vehicle availability.
Finally, congratulations to Nick Williams for his appointment at the top of Lex Autolease – we look forward to watching how he will steer the leaseco and its brokers in the future.
