Complete a tax check for a taxi or private hire

From 4 April 2022, the rules are changing if you're applying for a licence for a taxi driver, private hire driver or private hire vehicle operator.

If you're an individual, company or any type of partnership you must complete a tax check if you're:

  • renewing a licence
  • applying for the same type of licence you previously held, that ceased to be valid less than a year ago
  • applying for the same type of licence you already hold with another licensing authority

Please follow the link below to complete and provide the required tax share code.
