Dear Member,

I am delighted to inform you that we have secured TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith and comedian Hugh Dennis for the BIG Awards evening, which is taking place on 19th August 2022 at Farnborough International alongside the British Motor Show. Tickets to the awards are now available to buy online or through the member helpline, which also include a 4-day family ticket to The British Motor Show 2022, so come along and join us for an unforgettable weekend celebrating our industry.

As mentioned in the last bulletin, we will soon be contacting all Trust My Garage members to gather pricing information as we prepare to re-position the system to allow customers to book service and repair work directly into your business. This system will continue to be funded from IGA membership subscriptions, so we will be bringing customers to your doors without the fees.

Making Tax Digital for VAT comes into force today for all VAT-registered businesses, so you must now submit your tax returns digitally if you do not do this already. If you still need to prepare and find compatible software, information is available in the article below.

The new 2022/2023 MOT annual training period also starts today, and the RMI are providing the same training options as previous years to help testers meet the requirements. These are all available to book now if you would like to complete your training early; more details about each package can be found in the article below.

Best regards,


Stuart James
Chief Executive
