TfL has launched a scrappage scheme to help Small businesses and charities in London scrap vans that do not comply with the new Ultra Low Emission Zone standards, but which are driven into the ULEZ central London zone regularly.

Options include:

A payment of £6,000 to scrap a non-compliant van or minibus and help with running costs of a new electric vehicle, or

A payment of £3,500 to scrap a non-compliant van or minibus which can be used to:

  • purchase a newer ULEZ compliant Euro 6 vehicle
  • support ongoing business operations
  • access third party offers from rental and sharing services across London  

Those eligible businesses wishing to take advantage of the scheme can additionally benefit from one of our own incentives.  Find out more here

Those applying for the top payment of £6,000 to scrap the vehicle and use towards the running costs of an electric vehicle will be eligible for a maximum three month ‘rebate’ from the ULEZ to account for the longer lead-in time to purchase an electric model. The three-month rebate period will start from either the date of application or launch of the ULEZ, depending on which is later.

To qualify a micro business must have:

  • 10 or fewer employees;
  • Up to £632,000 turnover or £316,000 balance sheet total up to current financial year; and
  • Companies House registration as an active company or VAT registered.

Charities must be registered with The Charity Commission.

Businesses and charities will have to be registered in London or have been frequently observed driving in the Congestion Charging Zone, that’s at least 52 times during the past six months.
