The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing
Association (BVRLA) has call on new chancellor George Osborne to
scrap the tax disc and permit the purchase of multi-year Vehicle
Excise Duty (VED).

The Association made the suggestion as part of
its submission ahead of the emergency Budget on 22 June.

It has claimed that eliminating tax discs
could save the government more than £90 million each year.

The BVRLA added that automatic number plate
recognition (ANPR) cameras and continuous registration laws mean
there is “no longer a need for tax discs to be displayed on

Concerns have also been raised that high-value
discs could be targeted by thieves.

According to the association, introducing the
multi-year VED would save the industry up to £5 million in
administration costs each year.
