Road Fund Tax rates will be changing for all new cars registered on or after 1st April 2017. From that date onwards, the calculations will be based not only on the CO2 emissions but also the vehicle's list price and the type of fuel it uses.
This will affect all cars whether bought via retail, lease, rental, or fleet.
The changes are proving to be quite confusing, so let us help you to understand them a bit better.
|CO2 emissions (g/km)||Petrol and Diesel Cars 1st Year of Registration||Alternative Fuel Cars 1st Year of Registration|
|Electric Vehicle||Alternative Fuel Vehicle (hybrids, bi-ethanol & LPG) per year||Petrol or Diesel Vehicles per year|
|Standard Annual Rate||Additional Rate||Total Annual Rate|
|Petrol or Diesel||£140||£310||£450|
After 5 years, you'll pay the standard annual rate depending on what fuel your vehicle uses.
(At the moment this legislation applies only to cars, however some vehicles considered commercial vehicles, such as shuttles, may be affected.)
If you're in the market for a new vehicle, it is worth buying and registering before the end of March 2017.
To be sure of securing the old rate tax, take a look at our pre-registered vehicles in stock at our dealerships. These have already been registered by us, but have not left the forecourt - so you stand to grab an excellent deal! We can talk you through the vehicles we already have in stock for a speedier delivery. Ask us about factory fitted accessories too as this will impact on the duty. We can help you make the right choice at the best value!
Confused? If you are unsure about how this new legislation affects you, please get in touch with us and we will help you.
