New VED/Road Tax Rates for 500

Wahoo, from the 1st of April - my road tax goes down a whole 5 .. first time its gone down in any car I have owned!!!

1.2 119 g/km - BAND C

http://www.bytestart.co.uk/content/t...009-2011.shtml


My disc runs out on 31st March, so will have to go to a P.O. on the 1st to ensure no lapse rather than doing it online

The 1.3MJ was 111g/km when first release but was quickly revised to 110g/km.

It was actually a looser from the recession as it was supposed to be 0 road tax from last year (and London CC f.o.c too) but the road tax 'increases' were shelved due to the recession, as a result of which the 1.3MJ remained at the 35 rate

I am slightly annoyed with the recession too Zero tax would have been nice to have but 20 is super too.

Re: New VED/Road Tax Rates for 500

There is definately a huge satisfaction to not paying tax even if it costs more to do it

Re: New VED/Road Tax Rates for 500

so do I understand this correctly, the first year will be free as a kinda 'incentive' how is that an incentive when the dealer pays the first years tax? does it mean the 'on the road' price should be 30 less from april

I think traditionally - buying a new car, Dealer would include a charge for the tax disc, i,e the On-The-Road Price ... I don't think they will lower the OTR price if the cost of the disc goes down.

no neither do I, so I fail to see how free tax for the first year is an 'incentive' lol
