Road tax

Postby wightman » Mon Jan 31, 2011 6:34 pm

Older vans like my X reg have road tax based on engine size. Later vans probably based on Co2 level. This would lead to different rates.

Here you go, you can play all day with this, sorting out who pays what for road tax.

Look at the Mazda 6 MPS for instance.
First three weeks of March 2006 model, road tax = £245pa
Last week of Mrch 2006 onwards, same car, same performance = £425pa!

Rate of Road Tax for the Carry

Postby alanbirt » Sat Feb 05, 2011 12:59 pm

Yes, I raised this topic in 2008; see the thread:-

http://www.suzuki4u.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5464

It depends on when the Carry was first registered - if before 1 March 2001 then you pay at the lower rate. My vehicle, one of the last to be sold before it was discontinued (Dec 05), is taxed at the higher rate. Fortunately, as I use it only from after-Easter to end-Oct, I buy a six-month road licence as I'm on SORN for the rest of the year. However, this has a 10% premium so I would currently have to pay £110. By the end of April I expect the rate will have increased yet again !

If one has windows put in the side , does it lower the tax. Is the Carry taxed so high as it is classified a commercial vehicle?

Windows in Carry

Postby alanbirt » Tue Apr 26, 2011 7:58 am

The extra tax when windows were fitted to a van was cancelled some twenty or more years ago. I believe this was when "Purchase Tax" was replaced by "Value-Added Tax" but it was so long ago I can't remember exactly.

The road-tax on vehicles registered since the early 2000s now depends upon the engine emissions - a 'cleaner' engine, the less the tax, but even these rates keep changing from year to year.

Whether or not a van has extra windows fitted does not affect the rate at which the road-tax is charged.

Just paid for mine today - 6 months = £115 - still registered as a panel van.

Not the £110 as per the reminder - now, that annoys me. It should be the price printed on the document at that time! Its only a month between after all!!!

Road Tax

Postby alanbirt » Sat Apr 30, 2011 12:54 pm

Yes, I bought a tax disc for my Carry, too, on Thursday, the first day when it is permitted to buy one starting 1st May (although the vehicle must not be used on the public roads until 1st May - the cameras may get you if you use it before then).

I paid £115.50 for a six-months disc - as it will be on SORN again from 31 Oct, a six-months payment, although proportionately dearer, suits my situation. I've found that if I buy a twelve-months disc and then apply for a refund, it is a lot of fuss and it takes a further 2½ months and several reminders to DVLA to receive the money anyway. I suspect DVLA hopes you will forget about it and so they can keep the money. So I don't mind paying the 10% premium.

I'm going to Ireland for a week in my campervan on Wednesday, via Holyhead/Dublin.
