This is an important announcement regarding certain licence renewals and new applications.
Further details of the legislative changes can be found in Part 7, paragraph 342 of the Finance (No. 2) Act 2023.
If you are renewing your taxi or private hire car drivers licence, or taxi booking office licence after 2 October, 2023, you must complete a tax check.
HMRC have provided guidance which is available at the following links:
The tax check is mandatory for licence renewals submitted after 2 October, 2023 – be prepared.
By law Clackmannanshire Council can not process your application without completing this tax check. Please ensure that you provide the correct information and a tax check code that is less than 120 days old along with your renewal application.
Failure to provide the required information could result in your application being returned and your entitlement to drive a taxi or private hire car coming to an end.
If you are applying for a new licence to drive a taxi or private hire car in Clackmannanshire and you have held the same type of licence in the last year, then you will also have to follow this procedure.
If you have questions or concerns about the tax check or renewal process please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01259 450000.
