Road tax changes April 2020
From April 2020, changes are being made to the vehicle excise duty (aka road tax) system in the UK. As you may know, the amount of road tax you pay is based on how much CO2 your vehicle emits. Generally, the more your CO2 car emits, the more you pay. This will still be the case from April 2020. All road tax bands will remain the same, however buying a new car in April will be more expensive than buying one in March.
Road tax increase
The government estimates that most cars will experience a 20% increase in official CO2 emissions ratings. As a result, most cars will be in a higher road tax band in April 2020 than in March. This only affects the initial purchase price of the car. In the years following petrol and diesel vehicles will pay £145, hybrids will be £135 and fully electric cars will pay £0.
What should I do about it?
If you're thinking about buying a brand new car, your best option is to buy and register it before March 31 2020, otherwise you might end up paying more for it.
