HMRC updates AFRs
HMRC has updated the advisory fuel rates, which come into force from 1 December.
The only change is for diesel cars, with engines under 1600cc dropping by 1p per mile from 10 to 9ppm. All other diesel and petrol rates remain unchanged, while LPG for cars of 1401cc-2000cc dropping by a penny to 9p.
The advisory electricity rate (AER) for plug-in also cars remain unchanged at 4ppm.
British Motor Show to return
The British Motor Show is to make a comeback next year after a 12-year absence.
Last held in 2008 at Excel, London and organised by the SMMT, the new show will be held at Farnborough International, Hampshire between 20-23 August, with Andy Entwistle in charge of the event.
Entwistle was responsible for organising the London Motor Show and he said the event will feature a two-mile track for test drives.
Tickets are priced at £18.50 per person, however, at this stage the organisers have not announced any exhibitors.
An SMMT spokesman confirmed to Company Car Today that it is not involved with the show.
