THERE’S A BUMP ON THE ROAD YOU MIGHT WANT TO AVOID
Vehicle Road Tax (VED) is changing for new vehicles registered on or after 1st April 2020. If you are planning to upgrade your vehicle this year, then get in touch with us before 1st April 2020 as it could save you up to £960 in tax.
Why is VED changing?
The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) is a new measuring process for determining a vehicle’s official fuel consumption, range and CO2 emissions.
The previous testing procedure known as NEDC, was developed in the 1990s and is now outdated. WLTP has been designed to better reflect real driving conditions, to give a more accurate view of a vehicle’s emissions and fuel economy.
How will this affect your Road Tax?The new WLTP testing procedure has been designed to better reflect real driving conditions, to give a more accurate view of a vehicle’s emissions and fuel economy. This change takes effect from 1st April for VED (Vehicle Excise Duty or Road Tax) and 6th April for Benefit in Kind on Company Car Tax. Because the WLTP test is more stringent, the results are more realistic and this could mean an increase in road tax for your new car.
So if you're considering buying a new Jaguar or Land Rover, doing so before 1st April 2020 could save you up to £960.
