Julie Jenner at the ACFO conference
Sorry, another of my classic photographs - but there's ACFO chair Julie Jenner presenting at the conference

Blog: RALPH MORTON

I was at the ACFO conference yesterday, held at Mercedes-Benz World.

ACFO – the Association of Car Fleet Operators – is the premier organisation of its kind. It’s run very professionally by the indefatigable chair Julie Jenner and her fellow directors.

What’s more amazing, all these people have their own jobs organising and managing company fleets – and they run ACFO in their spare time.

So it shows you in what high esteem they are regarded when Mercedes-Benz gives the first UK preview of its new A-Class to the assembled fleet and business car managers present at the annual conference (see First sneak peak at Merc’s new A-Class).

But what does ACFO do? Plenty. But one of the areas Julie said ACFO was campaigning on was the incorrect coding supplied by HMRC for company car drivers.

So if you – or one of the drivers you manage – complains of an incorrect company car tax deduction, you can be sure Julie and the ACFO team are working with HMRC on your behalf to stop this happening in the future.

And if you’re a business car manager, then consider joining ACFO. They’re a friendly bunch – and always willing to share experience on company car management issues.

Do you have a car leasing question?

  1. I’m happy for people to contact Angela Humby at the membership office or me direct to provide any examples or instances of incorrect codes they or their drivers have experienced. Here is the contact for Angela – listed under Other contacts – http://acfo.org/contacts.php
    Julie Jenner, ACFO

  2. What should you do if your tax code is wrong?
    Apart from contacting ACFO – see Julie’s comment above – the HMRC advice is to contact them immediately.

    The HMRC contact number is: 0845 300 0627.

    When you get through, make sure you have your tax reference and National Insurance number.
    Ralph Morton, editor
