Contractors talking Red Diesel with HMRC at LAMMA 19

The National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) is delighted to announce that contractors will be able to get their questions answered by HMRC on red diesel on the NAAC stand at LAMMA 19 [Hall 17 Stand 17.740].

On the 8 January which is the first event day, contractors are invited to visit the NAAC stand between 11 – 12pm and 1.30 - 2.30pm to meet HMRC specialists to get their specific business questions answered one-to-one.

Members and non-members will be warmly welcomed on the stand to talk to HMRC experts who will answer questions on what constitutes legitimate agricultural use of the fuel.

Commenting, Duncan Russell, NAAC Chief Executive said, ‘There are often concerns when it comes to fuel use, particularly in diverse businesses, and we are pleased that HMRC are keen to assist contractors in making sure that everyone can get it right and stay road legal. We are encouraging contractors to visit the NAAC stand, bring along their questions and get the right answers, literally from the horse’s mouth.’

The National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) has launched a new, revitalised website at www.naac.co.uk, featuring an improved, easy to navigate ‘Find a Contractor’ area.

Finding a professional contractor has never been simpler, with all NAAC members on the website having appropriate insurance cover and agreeing to comply with an NAAC Code of Conduct. The website can track through a vast list of operations from ploughing to waste spreading through to sheep shearing or Knotweed removal, narrowing down to the area that contractors’ operate. Each contractor can then be contacted directly to discuss the best terms.

If a higher level of assurance is preferred, the NAAC’s website can also locate contractors that have qualified and passed an annual audit against the NAAC’s Assured Land-Based Contractor Assurance Scheme (ALBC). This is an independently audited standard that gives further reassurance that a contractor has all the necessary training and procedures in place to operate a professional business.

The new, improved website also features useful information for contractors and farmers, such as the annual NAAC Contracting Charges Guide, offering average prices surveyed from members.

In addition, a vast Members only area provides business guides and access to a comprehensive health and safety package which all NAAC members can access.

Commenting, Duncan Russell, NAAC Chief Executive said, ‘Over 91% of farmers now use a contractor and many would struggle to run their businesses without their contractor’s input, particularly for specialist, high capital investment machinery and the need for extra labour. The NAAC website offers a valuable resource of member’s details, alongside useful information and advice.’
