Car Tax Changes
There’s a big shake-up planned for the road tax system from April 2017, which will affect all vehicles except those with zero emissions.
Cars registered before April 1st 2017 will continue to be taxed under the old system. After that a flat fee of £140 applies for all vehicles not categorised as zero emissions (after 1st year).
The tables below show how the changes will effect your budget.
