The parking permit prices of the University of Eastern Finland will be revised starting 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.
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.
The price of short-term parking (including VAT) remains unchanged. Short-term parking costs 1 euros/hour, but will not exceed 6 euros/day.
Pay parking does not concern maintenance parking, disabled parking, rental car parking or parking by clinical patients arriving at the university.
The University of Eastern Finland introduced pay parking on 1 September 2018.
