Important update about tax checks

From 2 October 2023, the government are introducing a simple tax check that will take place when people renew the following licences:

  • taxi and private hire drivers
  • booking offices
  • scrap metal dealer sites
  • mobile or itinerant scrap metal collectors

Find out more and how the changes affect you in our licence tax checks bulletin.

A booking office licence is required for carrying on a business which consists to any extent of the taking of bookings, by any means of communication, from members of the public for the hire of a relevant vehicle, for example a taxi or a private hire car.
