The University continues to heavily subsidise Arriva Travelcards to staff. This provides great value for money for staff but HMRC requires staff to pay tax on the value of the resulting taxable benefit. Staff who purchase an Arriva Travelcard do not need to take any action, as Payroll will manage the collection of the tax from your next available salary payment.
The value of the benefit on an annual Travelcard is currently £149 (at 01 September 2017). Under the current rates, a standard rate tax payer who buys an annual Travelcard will be required to pay up to £30.00 in tax. If you are a higher rate tax payer, please contact payroll on email@example.com or 01483 689017.
Please note that the benefit and tax value are correct at time of publishing but are subject to change. For the latest information on the tax contribution due, please contact Payroll on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01483 689017.
