To claim a concession, you may complete the claim form which is mailed to you each November and submit it with the relevant annual return or follow the steps below. If you are claiming a concession for different premises, you must complete a separate form for each one.
To determine whether you are eligible for a concession, please refer to the congestion levy exemptions and concessions page.
The owner of a parking space in a public car park must give their completed concession claim form to the registered car park operator to submit as part of the operator’s annual return.
2020 congestion levy year
Car park owners are eligible for a 25% waiver for the 2020 levy year, and can defer any outstanding liability amounts until 31 March 2021.
2021 congestion levy year
Public car park owners are not eligible for a part-year concession for the 2021 congestion levy year as a result of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 Government Directions.
Private car park owners may be eligible for a part-year concession for the 2021 congestion levy year as a result of restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 Government Directions that were in force for 82 days from 6 August 2020 until 26 October 2020. If you are an eligible private car park owner, you can apply to claim the concession by lodging an objection to your 2021 levy assessment. A new online objection form is now available for this purpose.
