WPL Costs and Payments
Those employers that provide 11 or more liable workplace parking places will need to pay a charge for each of those places.
The Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) is an annual charge which is set in line with inflation. An annual licence runs between 1 April to 31 March with the cost of each liable workplace parking place confirmed prior to 1 January each year.
Charge for next WPL licensing period confirmed as £424
Central government has released the RPI (Retail Price Index) figure used to calculate the Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) charge from 1st April 2020.
The figure is 2.2% (as per November index), which means that the cost per workplace parking place per year for the licensing period 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021 will be £424 for employers who provide 11 or more liable places.
VAT is not payable by employers to Nottingham City Council on the WPL charge. Any parking charges an employer introduces for its employees are, however, subject to VAT.
Please be aware that employers with 11 or more liable workplace parking places (excluding disabled Blue Badge Holders) do not receive a discount on the first 10 places.
The Charge Payer
The charge payer is the person nominated by the employer who will be responsible for paying any WPL charge. The charge payer will not be held to be personally liable.
You can choose to pay annual Direct Debit, Direct Debit in 10 Monthly instalments (from April to January) or by annual invoice.
