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.
The cost per workplace parking place for the licensing year for 2023 - 2024 is £522 for employers who provide 11 or more liable places.
The Workplace Parking Levy charge for 2023 to 2024
Central government has released the RPI (Retail Price Index) figure used to calculate the Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) charge from 1st April 2023. The figure is 14% (as per November index). The cost, per place, for the 2023/24 WPL licensing period is confirmed as £522.
Employers with 10 or less liable workplace parking places (excluding disabled Blue Badge Holders) must obtain a licence but will receive a 100% discount on those 10 places. Employers providing 11 or more liable workplace parking places (excluding disabled Blue Badge Holders) do not receive a discount on the first 10 places. VAT is not payable on the WPL charge. However, any parking charges an employer passes on to its employees are subject to VAT.
