There’s new vehicle tax being introduced from April 1st. Whilst it’s important you’re aware of the changes to VED (Vehicle Excise Duty) coming into action, it’s especially essential to those looking to buy a different vehicle.
Those purchasing a new vehicle, from the start of April, also find themselves facing an additional tax charge. With changes to new car tax coming into force on April 1st, don’t be an April fool, find your next vehicle at Croyland.
For second-hand vehicles currently on the road or within our store, the VED changes will not apply and vehicles will be taxed under the old system. Therefore, by choosing a used vehicle from us, you can find the car you love without the expensive compromise.
Maybe you’re thinking about purchasing a vehicle from us? Whether you’re after a family-size SUV, or perhaps a luxurious Sedan, we tell you what you need to know, and why you should consider Croyland’s used vehicles.
The reasoning behind this new tax system is based on CO2 emissions. This means that the first time a vehicle is taxed, the rate to pay will be calculated on its emissions throughout the year. This leaves drivers facing a large increase to their current tax rate.
Currently, low-emission petrol and diesel cars are currently tax exempt. However, from April 1st onwards, this exemption will solely apply to electric and zero emission vehicles.
Most importantly, any car registered before 1 April 2017 will not be affected by this new tax change, and neither will Croyland’s pre-registered stock - just another reason to buy from us!
What’s more, after the first year of this new system, vehicles will then be taxed at one of the standard rates depending on whether the vehicle is petrol (£140), diesel (£130), alternative fuel or zero emissions (£0).
Even if you’re seeking to buy a smaller economical car, it’s possible you could be paying more than nine times what you’re paying now. Those with the highest polluting cars could even pay up to £2000 vehicle tax!
