    Cert of fitness...

    Got my p endorsement (not that p) and do the occasional trip for various employers. With getting a new vehicle thinking of getting c.o.f. Rather than w.o.f. Can this be done without it being registered to a business? Sort of makes sense in the way that c.o.f. Is a higher level of scrutiny so if something has gone wrong it a new vehicle you would be more likely to find out rather than a w.o.f

    Obviously if it is a lot more expensive I won't bother but was just a passing thought I had last night

    I thought COF was just for over a certain GMV.?

    I was pretty sure cof is only for vehicles over a certain weight. Doesn't matter if it's registered to a business or not

    I may be missing something, but reading the above link, it seems that apart from weight issues, the COF is not really much different to a WOF anyway

    If you are using ANY vehicle for passenger service it will require a COF regardless of weight.

    Right on the money. This includes rental cars.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    more exspensive . limited places it can get done.i think you will find tickets issued to a cof vehicle is 3 times the same infringement to a wof vehicle from my experience with getting a ticket for a light out on a trailer towed by my truck with cof $450 vs $150 if towed with a vehicle with a wof.

    Exactly even on private roads... so if I end up doing shuttle runs again next winter I can use my own truck instead of someone else's!

    While you are at it think about setting yourself up as a contractor/self employed that way you might be abe to claim expenses back.

    If youre declaring the income from the driving you can claim the costs incurred to achieve eg R&M etc. Im no tax expert but Id suggest you keep an honest vehicle log book and all your receipts.

    % of vehicle use against income will be based on a three month sample (at least that was my experience) and that % of income earning vs private use can then be generally applied..... (ie choose your three month sample wisely).

    Frankly I ran a log book 100% for years anyway but it was never queried

    Note that costs to earn will include your ph etc too so it should compliment your existing interests on the island anyway..... (if I understand correctly what you do, referred earlier somewhere previously, I think)
