VAT Charges for Off Street Parking from 1st July 2010

The Finance Act 2010 has implemented the judgment of the European Court of Justice in a case taken by the European Commission against Ireland (Commission of the European Communities v Ireland [C-554/07]). Accordingly, with effect from 1st July 2010, Cork City Council must pay VAT at 21% on all income generated in our two multi-storey car parks.

In order to meet part of the cost, charges in the multi-storey car parks will be increased by 20c per hour. This will meet approximately 50% of the VAT bill. The Council will absorb the balance and will seek to fund it by maximising income and making further savings across the board.
