Where an employee is provided with a taxi paid for by his or her employer for a journey from work to home, this represents a benefit to the employee because journeys between an employee's home and permanent place of work are private journeys [booklet 490].
However, this benefit can be treated as exempt from charge if:
•the failure of car sharing arrangements conditions are satisfied (see below), or
•all 4 late night working conditions are satisfied; and
•the number of such journeys for which a taxi has been provided for that employee in the tax year is no more than 60.
