Firstly can I thank you for your assistance, guidance and understanding in helping me with this matter. The service I have received from you has been first class and you have been a pleasure to deal with. I was very upset when we first made contact due to the increased deduction that was taken this month and although that has happened now, what you are now suggesting moving forward makes sense…….even to someone like myself who was really struggling to understand the system. It is very rare in this day and age that you have the benefit of dealing with someone who calls you when they say they are. You have followed up all our conversations with a fully informative email too. I was very set to ask to step out of the scheme, and although I still have my concerns with how my new working pattern is going to work, its thanks to you that I am going to continue for the time being. Thank you again Helen, I appreciate all your help so far, and look forward to working with you over the next few months and hopefully more.
“Fuel Card Optimiser was not particularly a ‘tax led’ project for Biffa. The stakeholder team was very large and of a multi-disciplinary nature. Innovation proved time and again their specialist knowledge in this overall project area and took time to explain in great detail to the whole project team and the relevant stakeholders the fundamentals of FFO and the legal framework in which it sits. They made this complex area of law very accessible to experts and non-experts alike."
Julian Bowden-Williams, Head of Tax & Treasury, Biffa LimitedRead story
“Because the whole process has gone so smoothly from the outset, we have actually needed very little face-to-face time with Peter. He is always available at the end of the phone no matter what the query and the whole service has taken up far less management time than we first envisaged. This is only our first year but we are track to make very sizable savings for both ourselves and the employees.”
Marcus Lamont, HR Director , Everest LtdRead story
“Under the new arrangement our staff get to keep their fuel cards but the cost to us of that provision has been reduced by over £1,000 a head. The solution does require the collation of business mileage records but staff are happy to do this because they understand the benefits to the business as well as themselves.”
Gordon Shepherd, Finance Director, OsborneRead story
“We have achieved a 100% compliance every month from day one. All the drivers submit their monthly mileage logs on time. Innovation check every single journey for compliance and train/educate drivers where appropriate. We would be pleased to endorse Innovation and recommend them to others. We have found Innovation to particularly knowledgeable in this area compared to others as well as highly professional."

“We made considerable gross savings thanks to the Fuel Card Optimiser solution in-line with Innovation projections. Importantly, all our employees are either cost neutral or in many cases are better off than before. I am happy to recommend Innovation Professional Services to other construction firms in particular and indeed to all businesses in general."
Peter Rose, Shared Service Director, Galliford TryRead story
“The arrangement delivers savings for both the company, which are significant and also ensures that also benefit, or at the very least are no worse off whilst helping the company save cost. The team at Innovation have been professional throughout, producing high quality employee communications and dealing promptly and thoroughly with any queries that have been raised through the transition process as we launched the product. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
Catriona Smith, Head of HR, McNicholasRead story
“They presented us with an idea that would save circa £1,000 per year for each member of staff who received the private fuel benefit. I am naturally risk averse and cautious with any new supplier, but after meeting John it gave us the confidence to move forward quickly. WE are nearly 2-yrs in – Innovation have done everything the said they would do and more. I couldn’t speak more highly of them.”
Jimmy Bradley, Deputy Finance Director, Kelly GroupRead story
“They brought us a new and innovative cost saving idea to us, which we have not seen being supplied by anyone else, even though we deal with a range of professional advisers. The system has been designed to be fully HMRC compliant. If any company is still providing free or private fuel to their employees, I would also encourage to talk with one of the advisers at Innovation.”
Phil Myers, Group Internal Audit Manager, Lookers plcRead story
“The success of the project so far has been partly due to the neat concept of the arrangement itself, but more importantly in my view, the quality of the Innovation team. It is the rare combination of technical knowledge, strong personal experience, a pragmatic approach and the human tough which make them so good at what they do.”
