London’s ultra low emission zone (Ulez) has the aim of improving air quality but it means that the owners of older, polluting vehicles will have to pay more to drive into the centre of the capital because of the Ulez van charge.
In addition to the congestion charge, for those vans that do not meet the Euro6 criteria (or Euro4 if your van has a petrol engine), then there’s an additional fee, so you’ll need to fork out £24 every time you enter the zone.
If you don’t do this, then there’s the prospect of a £160 a day find being levied, which means a trip into London for a small business can be very expensive indeed. To avoid the financial pain of receiving a fine, you can check whether your van needs to pay the Ulez charge on the Transport for London website.
There’s no doubt that lots of small firms, and even larger concerns, will find the extra costs too expensive and they’ll be looking to invest in a newer, less polluting vehicle.
