How Many are Your Business Vehicles?

A Company Vehicle is Any Vehicle Driven on Company Business or Organisation Business

A Business Vehicle has nothing to do with who owns the vehicle or how it is funded and there are many variations:-

  • Company owned outright
  • Company leased, Lease Purchase, Hire Purchase etc.
  • Company rental from Hertz, Avis, Budget etc.
  • On approval, loaned from manufacturer, dealership, repair garage etc.
  • Employee owned outright
  • Employee owned but on finance etc.
  • Employee "borrowed" i.e. family member, friend etc.

Following any - Accident - Incident - Claim - or Offence. The Police - Crown Prosecution Service - Health & Safety Executive - and Insurance Companies will investigate and all ask the question -

"Was the Vehicle being driven on business for a Company or Organisation?"

If Yes, then it's a Company Vehicle and any action or proceedings they take against the Vehicle under Current Legislation can now include the company or organisation on whose business it was being used!
