Benefits of Contractor Membership

 

 

REPRESENTATION

 

  • At UK Government level: One voice is hard to hear, but the united voice of the NAAC can get your message across - highlighting important issues affecting contractors and giving you a say in your future.

  •  

  • It is important that contractors have a voice at a political level so that we are not overlooked in important decisions that would affect our industry. For example, a few years ago when red diesel was under review contractors would have fallen under the radar without the NAAC, potentially loosing the right to use rebated fuel. This would have been disastrous for our sector. The NAAC argued that contractors are ‘farmers without land’, not just service providers,  and that we are an integral part of modern agriculture. After many months of fraught negotiations contractors are now recognised and clearly written into Government documentation as allowed to use red diesel – clearing many of the previous grey areas.

     

 

  • European Government level in Brussels: The NAAC has representation in Brussels, through the Confederation Europeene des Entrepeneurs de Travaux Techniques Agricoles et Ruraux (CEETTAR), which is the European organisation representing agricultural and rural contractors.

 

  • With other land-based organisations: The NAAC is a recognised trade organisation which works closely with the agricultural and land-based industries.

 

  • In the Press: Raising the profile of the contracting business and the issues which affect you.
