Car charge sends Nottingham tax inspectors into frenzy

A car parking tax plan will once again raise the ire of tax

Baker Tilly tax chief George Bull has noted that, with
Nottingham City Council looking to introduce a car park tax on workers, it
could ‘drive’ tax inspectors into a right frenzy.

Bull can remember way back in the 1980s that Treasury
proposals to tax workplace car parking faced fierce opposition from tax
inspectors and civil servants, which led to the plan’s demise.

‘We must wait to see whether history repeats itself and the
proposals are dropped,’ says Bull.

What with everyone being all green and environmentally
friendly, the 2,000 or so tax staff based in the city might have to get on
their bikes this time.
