Understanding the exclusively non-commercial purposes exemption.
Thursday 25 February 2021 | 11:00| Online (Zoom)
On 7 January we wrote to CTA members regarding the Department for Transport updating their guidance on the exclusively non-commercial purposes exemption – one of three possible exemptions from holding a PSV Operators’ licence that community transport providers can use when applying for a Section 19 or 22 Permit. You can find our previous email on the exemption here.
When we wrote to you in January, we said that we’d be putting together more detailed resources on the Department’s guidance, as well as organising an event where you can join the CTA team to go through the exemption and discuss how it could apply to you. The event is taking place on 25 February at 11:00 and is open for all CTA members. You can book your place using the ‘book now’ link at the top of the page.
You can find all our resources on permits and operator licensing in the members’ area of our website here including a short video looking specifically at the exclusively non-commercial exemption to help you decide which exemption applies to you. This is a discussion between our Director of Policy and Nations, Tim Cairns, and Support and Engagement Executive, Dylan Gallanders. For those organisations that currently hold both a PSV Operators’ Licence and Permits in the same legal entity, you’ll find an updated toolkit on how to set up a trading arm if you want to continue using both.
If you have any questions or require further clarity on this topic, we’d encourage you to take a look at the resources mentioned above and join us for our event on 25 February. And, as ever, if you need any additional support and want to talk to a member of the CTA advice team, you can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
