Car tax increase from 1st April 2021

It’s not an April fool’s prank when I say that vehicle tax goes up on the 1 April 2021.

In the revised fee rate schedule you will see the bandings for each vehicle type. It is well worth familiarising yourself with these tax bands, especially if you are planning to make a new car purchase, where the first year VEL payment can come as quite a shock, especially if the emissions are high.

I still fondly remember the paper tax disc which served as a yearly or 6 monthly reminder to head down to the Post Office to obtain one.

As we move through the challenges faced by the pandemic, we will be returning to the roads. Make sure you keep on top of your motoring documents including your insurance, tax, MOT’s and service schedules.
