Applying for and claiming the EVHS grant
You can check if your home and car are eligible to receive the EVHS grant on the government website. From 31st March 2022 onwards, only people who rent a flat, bungalow, terraced house, semi-detached or detached house, or who own a flat, will be eligible for the grant.
People who own a bungalow, terraced house, semi-detached house or detached house will be ineligible for the grant after the same date. All grant claims related to installations at privately-owned properties such as these will need to be submitted by 30th April 2022.
You may be eligible for the grant if you are an individual who:
- becomes a registered keeper of a new or second-hand eligible electric vehicle
- is assigned a company car for at least 6 months
- has leased an eligible vehicle for at least 6 months
- leases an eligible electric vehicle through a salary sacrifice scheme
- is named, by their employer, as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle for at least 6 months
- has ordered an eligible electric vehicle.
You may also be required to provide the following evidence in the form of a letter:
- business/registration number
- employer’s/business’s VAT number
- employer’s/the business’s HMRC registration, as an attachment to the letter.
A template to create the letter can be found in the ‘Documents required’ section of the government website page about the EVHS.
You can claim for one charge point per eligible vehicle, with up to two eligible vehicles per household.
