A fuel card works by allowing individuals within UK businesses to fill up at petrol stations without the need for cash or credit/debit cards. The employee simply presents the fuel card to the cashier and the fuel is billed directly to the company in one straightforward, HMRC-approved invoice.
Fuel cards also reduce the amount of paperwork needed and can be managed anywhere, any time through an online account management system, making the overall management of your business fuel quicker and smoother.
Using a fuel card can help businesses take control of fuel expenses. Knowing the exact cost of business fuel can help organisations make changes in order to reduce costs and save money. A fuelGenie fuel card saves businesses money by directing drivers to some of the UK’s lowest cost fuel. You can also view and manage your fuel spend online. Having this information available as a business can be very valuable when it comes to planning or upgrading the vehicles in the fleet.
Fuel cards help provide security and control over driver usage, drivers can be limited to purchasing fuel only, or fuel and other relevant products (oil, carwash etc). By providing employees with fuel cards, business can have complete confidence that the other purchases cannot be made using business funds.
