Tax Conditionality Checks for HC, PHV, PH Operators and Scrap Metal

HMRC has now published information on Gov.UK to help licensees and licensing bodies to prepare for new tax checks that were introduced in Schedule 33 of Finance Act 2021.
This will be a new addition to the checks that licensing authorities already have in place and it will need to be completed when people are renewing their licences to:

  • drive taxis or private hire vehicles  
  • operate private hire vehicle businesses   
  • deal in scrap metal 

The changes will apply in England and Wales from April 2022. 
They have also published on Gov.UK a toolkit of materials to help stakeholders to communicate what the tax check is and why it is being done. 
It is hoped  that you find these materials useful and that you will consider using them within your own channels to help to communicate about the tax check to relevant audiences. It includes a factsheet for licensees, a draft article/blog and social media assets.
