Car parking charges for 2019/20
In April last year, the Government withdrew some of the salary sacrifice arrangements that were available to employees in the UK. Salary sacrifice is when you exchange part of your salary, on which you would pay tax and National Insurance contributions, for a benefit, thereby saving you money.
CarParkingMax was one of the salary sacrifice schemes that was impacted by the changes introduced by the Government.
To mitigate the impact on staff, the University subsidised 50% of the increased costs for one year from April 2018 for all staff.
This subsidy has now come to an end. Therefore, while the cost of an annual staff parking permit will remain the same for 2019/20, the amount you pay will increase. Details of the costs are available on the CarParkingMax website.
Further information about the changes, including a series of Frequently Asked Questions, is available on the website.
