UEF Parking Permit Prices Change on 1 September
The parking permit prices of the University of Eastern Finland will be revised, effective from 1 September 2019. Helsinki Administrative Court has issued a decision according to which handing parking spaces over to staff and students constitutes an activity which, in accordance with the Value Added Tax Act, is subject to VAT.
“The value added tax is 24%, and approximately half of this will be added to the parking permit prices effective from 1 September. By covering the other half of the share, we wish to meet staff and students halfway,” Director of Administration Tuomo Meriläinen says.
The price increase does not take the effect of maintenance costs and cost-of-living index separately into consideration.
The price increase will be automatically implemented in invoicing from September onwards.
The price of a permanent student parking permit is 100 euros/12 months. The price of a fixed-term student parking permit is 13 euros/month. A student parking permit entitles to parking in areas reserved for student parking.
