With glob¬≠al¬≠iza¬≠tion, a fleet man¬≠ag¬≠er has to stay on top of the intri¬≠ca¬≠cies of U.S. tax¬≠a¬≠tion and the tax poli¬≠cies of every coun¬≠try their com¬≠pa¬≠ny runs vehi¬≠cles in. It can be a com¬≠plex web of fuel tax¬≠es, Val¬≠ue Added Tax¬≠a¬≠tion (VATs), as well as envi¬≠ron¬≠men¬≠tal and insur¬≠ance con¬≠cerns. There‚Äôs no way around it, but there is a way to get a firm grip on it.
NAFA‚Äôs Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Fleet Acad¬≠e¬≠my (IFA) pro¬≠vides fleet pro¬≠fes¬≠sion¬≠als with glob¬≠al duties the trust¬≠ed, inti¬≠mate envi¬≠ron¬≠ment to dis¬≠cuss such sub¬≠jects, as well as the infor¬≠ma¬≠tion they need to take informed, proac¬≠tive actions. The fourth annu¬≠al IFA will take place Novem¬≠ber 5‚Äď7 at Rosen Shin¬≠gle Creek in Orlan¬≠do, FL. On Thurs¬≠day, Novem¬≠ber 6, Bart Van¬≠ham, Part¬≠ner, BVH&C Con¬≠sult¬≠ing, Namur, Bel¬≠gium presents ‚ÄėWhat You Need to Know about Fleet and Tax¬≠a¬≠tion around the Globe.‚Äô
‚ÄúTax¬≠es are com¬≠pli¬≠cat¬≠ed enough right here in the U.S., but if you are respon¬≠si¬≠ble for assets halfway around the world, you need spe¬≠cial¬≠ized edu¬≠ca¬≠tion,‚ÄĚ said NAFA Chief Exec¬≠u¬≠tive Offi¬≠cer Phillip E. Rus¬≠so, CAE. ‚ÄúNAFA has made sure that the IFA presents the most press¬≠ing, most cur¬≠rent top¬≠ics on the minds of glob¬≠al fleet pro¬≠fes¬≠sion¬≠als. This ses¬≠sion alone, ‚ÄėWhat You Need to Know about Fleet and Tax¬≠a¬≠tion around the Globe,‚Äô makes this year‚Äôs con¬≠fer¬≠ence essen¬≠tial for any glob¬≠al fleet man¬≠ag¬≠er.‚ÄĚ
NAFA‚Äôs Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Fleet Acad¬≠e¬≠my was designed specif¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly to meet the needs of those who man¬≠age fleets out¬≠side of the Unit¬≠ed States and Cana¬≠da, and offers fleet pro¬≠fes¬≠sion¬≠als the tools to gain under¬≠stand¬≠ing, and the oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty to dis¬≠cuss the prob¬≠lems and chal¬≠lenges they‚Äôre fac¬≠ing with some of the bright¬≠est minds in glob¬≠al fleet man¬≠age¬≠ment.
NAFA‚Äôs Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Fleet Acad¬≠e¬≠my helps atten¬≠dees build the spe¬≠cial¬≠ized skills need¬≠ed for the expand¬≠ing and chang¬≠ing fleet envi¬≠ron¬≠ment across diverse world mar¬≠kets. Atten¬≠dees will leave with a stan¬≠dard of excel¬≠lence for their deal¬≠ings with¬≠in and out¬≠side their orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tion, with cus¬≠tomers, sup¬≠pli¬≠ers, and dri¬≠vers among oth¬≠ers. The con¬≠fer¬≠ence is a ‚Äúmust‚ÄĚ for com¬≠pa¬≠nies and orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tions with glob¬≠al fleets, as well as cor¬≠po¬≠rate glob¬≠al fleet man¬≠agers; cor¬≠po¬≠rate fleet direc¬≠tors; pro¬≠cure¬≠ment spe¬≠cial¬≠ists; cor¬≠po¬≠rate exec¬≠u¬≠tives with report¬≠ing respon¬≠si¬≠bil¬≠i¬≠ty for their organization‚Äôs fleet oper¬≠a¬≠tions; fleet per¬≠son¬≠nel who assist fleet man¬≠agers and direc¬≠tors in their glob¬≠al fleet oper¬≠a¬≠tions; and fleet man¬≠agers, direc¬≠tors, and exec¬≠u¬≠tives who want to learn more about mul¬≠ti-nation¬≠al fleet oper¬≠a¬≠tions.
‚ÄúIt is crit¬≠i¬≠cal for glob¬≠al fleet man¬≠agers to under¬≠stand key region¬≠al issues regard¬≠ing tax¬≠a¬≠tion, as well as envi¬≠ron¬≠men¬≠tal and insur¬≠ance con¬≠cerns,‚ÄĚ said Rus¬≠so. ‚ÄúNAFA‚Äôs Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Fleet Acad¬≠e¬≠my allows them to do that on a much wider can¬≠vas, to make good and right deci¬≠sions on behalf of their com¬≠pa¬≠nies, and that‚Äôs impor¬≠tant.‚ÄĚ
