Fuel cards are far safer than carrying cash, debit or credit cards around and help combat driver fraud. If you lose cash or a credit card, these can be picked up and used wherever. Although unauthorised credit card purchases are often insured, it’s usually a long, drawn out process trying to organise a claim. You may never have a trust issue with your drivers, however you can never be too careful. Drivers given cash, credit or debit cards can easily use them to pay for their personal purchases and ‘lost’ receipts for business fuel expenses are often not necessarily so. Fuel cards can also be printed with the registration number of the vehicle that uses the card – a deterrent to drivers filling up their own vehicles. They can even be restricted to particular fuel products if need be.
Combat drivers’ dead mileage
Another instance of driver fraud. Could your drivers be travelling out of their way to collect tokens, vouchers, points or other freebies at certain filling stations when they need to refuel? They could be costing you company time, additional mileage on the vehicle and extra fuel. Fuel cards usually restrict drivers to a particular network. With hundreds of sites still to choose from there is an ample number of filling stations en-route, but fuel cards help to restrict dead mileage – forcing drivers to refuel where it suits your company best, not them.
Cast Iron VAT Reclaim
Over a quarter of mileage claims without a fuel card are without a valid receipt, fact! If you don’t have a receipt, or your driver loses one, you can’t reclaim your VAT and at 20% that’s going to hurt. With our fuel cards, you will receive a fully VAT-approved management report and invoice per billing period, detailing every single transaction. This ensures you can claim back every penny of the VAT you are owed.
Save Time (and time is money)
We all know the hours spent on paperwork can be best spent doing other things, like trying to run your business! Our VAT-approved management reports take the hassle of matching up receipts to bank/credit card statements or trying to balance the petty cash tin. Accountant friendly, these reports are free. You can even see historical ones online through our account management tool, so if you ever lose one, login, click, print, job done!
Why pay for fuel now? Each card’s credit terms vary slightly (down to varying terms offered to us by the oil companies), but our cards can offer up to 28 days credit, interest free as standard. All helping to improve your company’s cash-flow.
Exceptional Customer Services
Every single customer will be allocated a dedicated Account Manager, who will be in touch as regularly or as infrequently as you like. They will ensure you receive what we consider to be the best Customer Service in the industry. You can also manage your account online. So if you need to order additional cards, request more site directories or have a chat about anything (fuel related of course), we are just a click or a phone call away! Plus our impressive online account management software, which is free to use, leaves the competition standing and offers comprehensive transaction management.
