Fleet Tax Pro type targeted at simplifying Alberta’s new car registration process

CALGARY, Alta.– New regulations on how Albertans in the trucking industry fill out their automobile registration types have worked, and with 2016 looming, several owner-operators, leasers and companies will have to follow these brand-new rules. Sandy Johnson of North Star Fleet Solutions, creator of the Fleet Tax Pro website and Truck West writer, provided a webinar earlier in the month to assist those trying to find information on these brand-new provincial standards. “There seems to be a lot of confusion around not only whose name can appear on a registration,” stated Johnson, “however likewise some brand-new kinds which are required, when they are required and whose name goes on the kind and where.” Owner-operators, for instance, were previously noted on automobile registrations as the lessor, however under the brand-new rules, only leasing companies can appear on the forms. Johnson said numerous owner-operators are ‘scratching their heads’ over this modification, as having one’s name on the registration as the owner of a piece of equipment ‘would seem to be a crucial information.’ However, as Johnson mentioned, the province has actually indicated that only a valid proof of purchase is proof of ownership, not vehicle registration, which is why she highlighted the significance of retaining the proof of purchase.

Now, if a car is owned, the lessor field remains blank, and if the vehicle is leased, just the renting business’s name will appear as the lessor.
