You must register with us if you own premises in the category 1 levy area which contains or forms part of a car park. If there are several owners, only one needs to submit a form on behalf of all owners.

Note: the operator of a public car park must register within one month of becoming the operator to avoid penalties.

Next steps

After registering, you will receive an annual return from us each November. You must complete the return and send it back to us by 21 January the following year so we can calculate your assessment. Assessments are sent in mid-March.

If you sell a car park or a property to which parking spaces are attached or associated, you need to change your details with us within one month of settlement.

If you sell the premises during an assessment year you are still liable for the levy for that assessment year as you owned or operated the premises to which parking spaces are attached or associated on 1 January of the assessment year.
