UK - Two fleet providers have teamed up to offer an enhanced employee car ownership plan.
The deal aligns the fleet management skills of Arval PHH to the employee car ownership package offered by Provecta Car Plan.
Employee car ownership plans avoid the high tax costs of company car fleets by providing cheap car ownership deals for employees.
Provecta Car Plan spokesman David Voss said: “This signals an exciting new phase in the evolving company car market. It brings employee car ownership into the mainstream and acknowledges its role in any well managed fleet or employee benefits scheme.
“Arval PHH is an industry leader in fleet management and consultancy and as such needed a partner with similar strength in delivering individually tailored, Inland Revenue-approved employee car ownership packages.
“Our customers will be able to take advantage of a complete range of products and services, backed by two companies with proven expertise.”
