MiniAs a result of HMRC changes to the tax treatment of certain benefits provided through a salary sacrifice arrangement, we regret that the University is no longer able to offer the Parking+ scheme. The scheme was introduced as a tax-efficient benefit to take advantage of tax and National Insurance savings, however, the changes mean that parking permits will now be treated as a taxable benefit and the savings are no longer available.

The changes came into effect from April 2017, but the University took advantage of the Government's protection period, so that staff already in the scheme would not be affected until April 2018.

We hereby give notice that the Parking+ scheme will cease with effect from 31 March 2018. There will be no change to the parking charges and you will retain your current permit, this is just a change to the way in which the charges are paid. With effect from 1 April 2018, parking permit charges will be taken as a deduction from your net salary each month. This change will happen automatically and you will not need to take any further action.

If you wish to cancel your permit you must return it to Palmer Reception as per the conditions of use. The permit will be cancelled and Payroll will be informed to stop the parking charges being deducted from your salary.
