The Benefits Of Fuel Cards For Charities

Fuel Cards for Charities are the perfect way to save money and manage vehicles. With the potential to save money and reduce time spent doing administration, fuel cards can lead to greater efficiency and increased funds for beneficiaries.

Whether it be collecting items or delivery donations, many charities have high fuel costs due to the nature of their work. Managing fuel expenditure is vital when it comes to charities as every penny counts.

How Do Fuel Cards For Charities Work?

Each charity employee is issued with a fuel card that they can use to refuel at fuel stations on the network. Find out more about how fuel cards work.

The cost of fuel is then charged to the charity at a later date, as per the agreed payment terms. This removes the need for employees to have cash or credit cards, plus fuel cards are interest free unlike credit cards which is another saving. You also won’t have to reply on employees to collect receipts as invoices are VAT approved.

Benefits Of Fuel Cards For Charities

  1. Savings
  2. Easy VAT Reclaim
  3. Less Admin
  4. Increased Security

1. Savings

One of the main benefits of fuel cards is the savings associated with them.

Savings come in more ways that just lower prices.

For example, using your free online account management tool you can monitor how often drivers are filling up. Using this you can see which drivers are spending the most and provide training to improve driver performance.

With lower costs and improved driver performance, you’re looking at savings.

2. Easy VAT Reclaim

A great benefit of using fuel cards is that they make your VAT reclaim process very easy.

All invoices are VAT approved, with all transaction from a given period combined together.

This removes the need to collect receipts for every individual transaction, simplifying your VAT reclaim process.

3. Less Admin

With access to Velocity Fleet, your free online account management system, you can cut down on admin.

Everything you need will be in one place and with just a couple of clicks you can easily create expense and transaction reports.

This can cut down a ton of wasted admin time.

4. Increased Security

Fuel cards are a lot safer than cash and credits.

Each card has a unique four digit PIN and strict limits can be set to limit purchases to a certain amount. Alerts can also be created, meaning you will receive notification each time a transaction over a certain amount is completed.

Fuel cards are also limited to fuel, meaning employees can’t purchase non-fuel products.
