OLEV Workplace Scheme
What is the Grant?
The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations.
Any business, charity or public authority is eligible to claim the grant towards the
cost of installing electric vehicle charge points providing they have dedicated off-street parking for staff or fleet use only. The grant is available throughout Scotland and England.
The grant will pay up to 75% of the purchase and installation costs, up to a maximum of £500 per socket.
Yes, but you must be able to attach evidence that they are registered as a company with HMRC. You will need to provide a copy of your registration on application. If you are a charity, you can use your registration to the Charity Commission.
No. However, you need to declare either a current need for EV charging infrastructure or an intention to encourage uptake amongst your staff and/or fleet.
The Government will legislate a tax exemption in relation to employees who charge their own electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles at work. This means the value of the electricity used will not be taxed as a benefit-in-kind.
