New motor tax rates

Not sure if it has been spoken about yet.

Motor tax for cars in band A will go up from 104 to 160, and band B goes up from 156 to 225. Band C will go up from 302 to 330, Band D - 447 to 481, Band E - 630 to 677, Band F - 1,050 to 1,129, Band G - 2,100 to 2,258.


For cars registered before 1 July 2008:
Not over 1,000 cc: increase from 172 to 185
1,001 to 1,100 cc: increase from 259 to 278
1,101 to 1,200 cc: increase from 286 to 307
1,201 to 1,300 cc: increase from 310 to 333
1,301 to 1,400 cc: increase from 333 to 358
1,401 to 1,500 cc: increase from 357 to 384
1,501 to 1,600 cc: increase from 445 to 478
1,601 to 1,700 cc: increase from 471 to 506
1,701 to 1,800 cc: increase from 551 to 592
1,801 to 1,900 cc: increase from 582 to 626
1,901 to 2,000 cc: increase from 614 to 660
2,001 to 2,100 cc: increase from 784 to 843
2,101 to 2,200 cc: increase from 823 to 885
2,201 to 2,300 cc: increase from 860 to 925
2,301 to 2,400 cc: increase from 895 to 962
2,401 to 2,500 cc: increase from 935 to 1,005

Large enough considering fuel increasing also.

it's weeks like this that make me glad I'm leaving

I thought they were going to redo the bands too to push all those 520d and A6s that suddenly made band B by 1-5g CO2/km. Would have been a better way to manage it..

With carbon taxes on fuel gone up, VAT increases, and the rest.. it's not exactly encouraging anyone to buy anything right now...
Oh wait - we're encouraging buying property for first time buyers again - sound familiar!?!

Is that just for first time buyers or everyone?
Hold it for 7 years and no capital gains tax liability (would suggest investor activity).
But if you don't make a profit there'll be no CGT liability anyway!!!

7.5% increase on older cars was just unfair

Mines up to €592 . Although on the otherhand thankfully mines an '07 reg, because if it was registered after July 2008 I would be paying Band F - €1,050 to €1,129. :O

Wifes CRV diesel is now up to €925. The guy around the corner with a 520d worth 5 times our CRV is paying SEVEN HUNDRED EURO LESS.

I get that they want efficient cars, but that sort of gap is not on.

If it was fair, you should be entitled to at least pick which version you would want to pay, especially as older diesels arent worth that much. At least with petrol cars, none of them are worth much!!

Although I agree re the differential, the value of the car has nothing to do with it.

I suppose the 'spirit' behind the car tax system is that if you can afford a bigger engined car then you must be wealthier and hence in a better position to pay.
An observation not necessarily my view as to what would be fair.

I do agree with the tax the fuel system but as a cynic I would fear a re-introduction because times are hard etc so I would be very slow to push for that - + all the jobs that would be lost in the tax offices...

I think the issue here was introducing silly low tax bands for the newer models with their stop strat nonsense and IMO fudging carbon output figures.
The older rates should have been left alone and the 104 etc should have been doubled IMO.

Rant over (and not a hint of sarcasm - displaying personal growth)

It's actually currently €1050 for a 147 1.6 TS registered after July 2008, rising to €1129 from January 2012.

Band F : More than 190g/km up to and including 225g/km

Still correct.

It's part of the reason Alfa couldn't sell Petrol cars ( the 147 & GT ) after July '08, that & the fact the VRT changes implemented meant car list prices of petrols increased by thousands & the list price of diesels dropped by thousands.

€885 + €660 = €1545 / yr for the cars... Great. That's a 7.5% increase. But at least the local roads will now be 7.5% better! That means I can travel more than 4mph to work in the morning..

(and yes I know it's not quite a main road..)

Now sir there are two things I take exception to in your statement:
1) you spelled potatoes incorrectly
2) you've used a sweeping generalisation re us Paddies as all being potato pickers!!!

As a penance you need to send me two tickets to where you are to make up for it.
(This is assuming that your address is up to date!!!)

I agree.. I use a machine to pick potatoes... I don't use my hands & a bucket anymore!
