  1. Commission definately not included, as we know a lot of sales people are probably on circa £12000 PA ( From what I'm hearing) so regardless of how much they earn in commission the gov only looks at the basic pay and will only pay 80% of the basic £800 !
  2. The IMDA have today started a petition to the government to request for Furlough Leave to include Salespeople’s Commissions within 80% payment offer, as we know a lot of sales staff wages are heavily bias towards commission and we feel this is unfair and want to help all the sales staff. If you could please sign the petition. Thanks Umesh
  3. Great interview and great insight, Daksh is always very open and good to listen to.
  4. Autotrader announce full year results, in line with market expectations, but also announce hashtag#covid19 support for dealers. Advertising package fees for April to be waived and payment of March fees to be deferred for 30 days. Expected to produce a loss for the business in April of £6m-£7m. This will be very welcomed by all!
  5. AA Cars: Sold a couple from there in the last couple of months, only been with them for about 4 months or so! So far so good I would say.
  6. Only for franchise dealers not for used car dealers. I had a long conversation with them at one of the conference last year.
  7. You're like an old stuck record Mr. H .... Just like ME! Same arguments, same conversations , same reasoning - Consumers are being MISLED and in a lot of cases the higher price ones are the BETTER BUY! #Simpes #KIP
  8. Debit Card - Chip & Pin - ID Matches - licence matches etc , should be all OK. Defo not credit card' if BIG payment.
  9. Not seen that ?? would be the best move @Rory RSC asThe IMDA asked for them to be removed totally but they were adamant in keeping it and we keep battling on with it, another meeting next week will keep everyone posted of the outcome.!
  10. Markers are staying as @Rory RSC says! we ( The IMDA) have had talks and onging asking the removal of ££ under/over ! this is so mileading as we all know, hoping they will remove these!
  11. Yes - a few ! Although ALL the conversations have started with " it's ove priced....." managed to convince them , but they must have been interested in my cars to even make contact ! the biggest worry is that how didn't bother to contact me and simply scrolled past .... !! As I keep saying to Autotrader 'we're starting on the back footwith customers, the motor trade already has a bad reputaion and these markers are not helping to build trust whenthey tell customers our cars are 'high price' with inaccurate data! IMO! Reduced my stock by 50%! [ No not in price - Advertised stock! ]
  12. Good to see you back @jamslug ! Lot's has changed and nothing's changed if you get my meaning! Good luck in the new city and the new venture.!
  13. many on here won't know isopon p38 ...remember the stuf well!!
  14. Agree with @David Horgan @Rory RSC@Nick M.K. the so called 'data and 'icontrol ' is sure way to blow your brains out. #MyThoughts
