ARI Fleet’s Keith Allen highlights the technology revolution in the auto finance industry

Dramatic changes are on the horizon for productivity in the global fleet industry. Companies are increasingly likely to embrace the use of technology in fleet vehicles to reduce fleet costs, as well as drive employee productivity.   Advancements in automotive technology will see future vehicles with integrated technology to directly manage fuel purchases and capture telematics data to manage driver behaviour and proactive maintenance scheduling. The ways in which technology and the increased use of data are playing their part in helping fleet operators meet their key objectives of cost, safety and environmental impact, is the subject of a keynote speech by Keith Allen, managing director of ARI Fleet UK at the upcoming International Auto Finance Network conference Innovation in the auto finance industry: technology, big data and business improvement.

Lease Accounting changes: small lessees are allowed much more time

The past week has brought mixed news on the outlook for the planned new global lease accounting standard. Most importantly: • It now seems clear that the standard, requiring wholesale capitalization of leased assets on the lessee's balance sheet, will at last be finalized this year, although probably not for at least six months yet; and • the possibility of a major exception for small ticket leases has now disappeared; but • in many jurisdictions, the SMEs who comprise the great majority of lessees may not have to apply any of the new rules for almost seven years yet; and • the rules for applying capitalization to leases already running at the future adoption dates of the new rules will be easier than proposed earlier.
