UK Introduces The World’s First Sharing Economy Tax Breaks

Yesterday’s Budget announcement brought with it not only the usual optimistic forecasts, merciless cuts and back-bencher jeers. And no, we’re not talking about Theresa May’s dress or the extra dosh we’ll have to fork out for a can of Coke.

Mr Osborne’s latest red box also bore glad tidings for micro-entrepreneurs – including JustPark space owners – across the country, introducing the world’s first sharing economy tax breaks.

Ten Ways You Can Make Money Through The Sharing Economy

The sharing economy is one of the hottest trends in the world right now – and at JustPark we’re immensely proud to be a part of this exciting, growing movement.
