According to HMRC proposals leaked to ContractorCalculator, anyone living within 30 minutes walking distance from work will not be allowed to claim for motor vehicle or public transport travel expenses, because they could walk to work.
The only exception to the new rules is that if it is raining or below 5⁰C, then a contractor will qualify for tax relief on travel expenses.
It seems this is part of the state's plans to make us all fit and healthy. HMRC’s proposed ‘living in close proximity to work’ regulations also include provision for home workers to earn tax reliefs through home exercise regimes.
HMRC even propose tracking the speed at which people walk/run to work to see if they qualify for certain new reliefs.
Well I see this working very smoothly then!
Tax does have to be taxing.
