Revenue refuses to pay congestion charge

Link: Congestion charging doesn’t bother FDs

When Ken Livingstone’s new charges come into effect around central London from 17 February, motorists will not be able to claim the money back as a tax-deductible expense.

The Revenue said that it would treat such charges in the same way as it looks at Underground and rail fares and parking fees, which are not seen as allowable business expenses.

In the same way it is expected that most businesses located within the charging zone are also unlikely to reimburse employees who travel to work by car.
