Stay one step ahead of the new Vehicle Tax changes, to make significant savings

Changes to Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) Car Tax announced in George Osborne’s budget back in 2015 are due to be implemented on the 1st April 2017.

Keep one step ahead, order your new vehicle now to ensure it can be registered before 1st April 2017 to make significant savings in Vehicle Tax.

How it’s calculated now

The current road-tax system looks at how much carbon dioxide (CO2) your car emits, the more it emits the more tax you pay each year – and owners whose cars emit under 100 grams per kilometre (g/km) of CO2 are currently exempt from paying road tax entirely.

How will it be calculated from 1st April?

However this is all set to change, any new car registered on or after 1st April will be taxed according to new rules. Only the first year of tax will remain based on CO2 emissions, after that all cars (aside from fully electric and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles) will cost £140 a year to tax.

Furthermore, cars with a list price (after options) of over £40,000 will be subject to an additional £310 levy applicable for the first 5 years in which a Standard Rate is paid.
