The consequences of driving economically

02/05/2011   -   The tax-friendly car is enormously popular, so much so that the Dutch government has decided to cut back support and subsidies for it.

The arrangement has literally become the victim of its own success. This decision elicits many questions. What exactly is being abolished? What does this mean for me, my co-workers and my vehicle fleet? In this news item we will answer a few of the questions you will probably have.
If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We know the rules and can give you advice tailored to your organization on how to meet your transport needs.


What the Dutch government has decided

First the good news: a tax incentive to buy the most economical car will remain in place. Those cars will continue to be exempt from car registration tax (BPM).

As for the not-so-good news: the government has decided to abolish the exemption from motor vehicle tax (MRB) for highly economical cars (such as the Toyota Prius) with effect from 1 January 2014. Earlier news reports suggested 1 January 2013, but now the effective date has been postponed for one year.

The reduced surcharge for economical and highly economical cars (20% and 14%) will remain in place. Moreover, until 2015 there will also be an exemption from motor vehicle tax and a “zero surcharge” for cars emitting no more than 50 g/km.

As part of the "simplification" process, the car registration tax will, with effect from 2015, make no more distinction between the purchase of a petrol or diesel vehicle (apart from the surcharge for diesel cars, which will remain in place). As is known, the government wants to make the car registration tax for both diesel and petrol cars entirely dependent on CO2 emission levels rather than on the purchase price. This track was already launched a few years ago with the car registration tax already being partly dependent on CO2 emission levels. The CO2-dependent car registration tax rates for diesel and petrol cars will be harmonized during 2012-2015 so that by 2015 the same limits will apply to both.

What the exemption and BPM rules and possibilities will look like as from 2015

In 2015, cars emitting less than 83 grams per kilometre will be exempt from car registration tax. Diesel cars will pay a CO2-dependent diesel surcharge which replaces the present fixed diesel surcharge. This CO2-dependent diesel surcharge will kick in at an emission level of 70 g/km.

This means that there will be many tax changes in 2015. In that same year, the IFRS rules will come into effect. Do you know about this?
