LAUNCH OF CAR OWNER PLAN - the beginning of the end of the Company Car Thursday 13 December 2001 PDF Print http://www.carownerplan.com Car Owner Plan is an alternative to the Company Car that can save both Employers and Employees thousands of pounds per annum whilst still delivering the "hassle free" comforts of the Company Car. Car Owner Plan has been established by Giles Morris and Alan Jones both former Executive Directors of Whitechapel Corporate Services Ltd the company responsible for the radical ground breaking Whitechapel Car Ownership Scheme successfully implemented by such blue chip companies as BP, Glaxo, Reuters, AstraZeneca [see http://www.fleetnewsnet.co.uk/newshome/home_fullarticle/?art...], Siemens [see http://www.fleetnewsnet.co.uk/newshome/home_fullarticle/?art...], Royal&Sun Alliance [see http://www.fleetnewsnet.co.uk/newshome/home_fullarticle/?art...] and Abbey National. Abbey National liked the product so much they bought Whitechapel in 1998 [see http://www.fleetnewsnet.co.uk/newshome/home_fullarticle/?art...] Giles and Alan have now served their "non-compete" sentences and have launched Car Owner Plan - an alternative to the Company Car that is focussing on the smaller fleets of less than 50 cars which probably represent more than half of the total Company Cars in the UK. A company may have as few as two company cars but if those cars are expensive then the annual savings available could easily be £15,000 and Car Owner Plan is ready, willing and able to deliver. Car Owner Plan is not affiliated to any of the manufacturers or specialist car leasing companies and is in the best position to give impartial advice to small fleets and/or to employees who have been given a cash alternative and then left to their own devices. Car Owner Plan attempts to strip away the consultancy jargon and explain in simple terms (with examples) how the Car Owner Plan achieves the savings that some FTSE 100 companies have been achieving for a number of years (in fact Alan Jones was the Group Tax Manager of the first company to implement the plan on 1 April 1994 for a fleet of 800 company cars and was instrumental in developing what is now known as the Whitechapel Car Ownership Scheme) BUT without having to pay substantial fees to listen to consultants stating how complex/technical it is. Employers/employees can very quickly - in less than a few minutes - obtain a free online estimate of the savings available for a specific car. Car Owner Plan's unique approach is to give the total savings available [http://www.carownerplan.com/example.asp] and then to implement Car Owner Plan to give an equitable share of the savings to both the employer and the employee. Car Owner Plan also invites employees of those large companies who have "moved away from Company Cars" to check out whether they are getting an equitable "slice" of the savings "cake".
