New Fleet-Tax Mississauga Location
By Marek Krasuski
All stakeholders know that commercial trucking is a highly regulated industry that requires compliance with multiple agencies and governments. Successful operators and carriers understand the complexity and time involved in achieving ongoing adherence to industry expectations. Companies focused on the business of trucking often outsource these essential tasks to premier providers capable of successfully meeting all compliance requirements.
Since 2001 Fleet-Tax Services Inc. has served the industry with a wide spectrum of services that meet the many administrative needs within a transportation organization. Company President, Vickie de Vos, highlights the complete package of services provided by Fleet-Tax and delivered through experts with over 100 years’ experience in trucking and transportation. “From the very beginning,” she said, “Fleet-Tax Services offers a complete and well received ‘On-The-Road’ package for start-up companies.” Vickie adds that the company is known for its mock MTO/DOT Insurance audits which are assessed by those in the know – retired MTO staff that worked at the scales and conducted audits in their previous careers. Other services include, but are not limited to, On-Site Training for DVIS, Load Security, HOS, and Trip Planning with retired MTO staff. On-Site Drug & Alcohol Testing is available with their testing facility. Booking drug and alcohol appointments can be made by your company directly with any of their staff at the both locations. Both sites offer saliva samples although this is still not recognized by the US DOT, but commonly practiced in Canada. Fleet-Tax Services will soon be launching their on-line booking system to further assist in trip planning for employees.
Core services by Fleet-Tax also include Driver Qualification Packages, Fleet Administration, I.R.P. and Ontario Only plated units, Fuel and Mileage Tax Reporting, New Carrier Complete Registration (FMCSA, CVOR, NY HUT, NM, KYU, OR, UCR, CustomsTransponders, ACE, ACEI, W.S.I.B ) while emphasizing the values in safety and trip planning to make companies successful.
Fleet-Tax Services Inc.’s reputation with keeping companies operating in compliance under the regulations of Fuel & Mileage Tax Reporting is respected and well known within the industry. A rule of thumb is 1,000 litres in error in audit is an average charge of $1,000.00 Canadian. Staying compliant is imperative and failure to do so can render a company non-compliant and subject to penalties. As well, your mileage reporting is the base to a carrier’s IRP, insurance, CRA, CVOR, DOT thresholds and costs. The importance in collecting and allocating all kilometres under the correct regulation is extremely important in obtaining success.
In response to robust demand, particularly in and around the GTA, Fleet-Tax Services Inc., is strategically located in Beamsville, Ontario, 30 minutes from the New York border and directly across from the Relay Shell Truck Stop. The company recently added a new location to serve the Mississauga and Brampton areas with extended hours to assist in trip planning. Vickie de Vos explained the expansion decision. “Many requests from insurance companies, clients, and the industry encouraged us to open in Mississauga. Our company values are being recognized and heard in the Transportation Sector. Mississauga has Canada’s largest growth in the transportation sector over the past years. It is the hub for transportation and we will continue to be a valued voice in the industry in this region and beyond,” she said.
The official launch of the opening was held in October and the new facility provides all the services available at the Beamsville location.
