The payment deadlines are 20 February and 21 August.
How much do I have to pay?
The amount you have to pay depends on the weight, the number of axles and the type of suspension system. The weight-based vehicle tax can therefore vary considerably depending on the vehicle. Diesel vehicles must also pay an environmental tax. See all weight-based annual motor vehicle tax rates
Weight-based vehicle tax must only be paid for heavy goods vehicles. For vehicles under 7,500kg, you must pay annual motor vehicle tax.
Who has to pay?
The owner is responsible for ensuring that the correct tax is paid for the vehicle. If the vehicle is registered to tow a trailer, you will find the maximum permitted gross weight on the vehicle registration document.
If the vehicle is purchased or sold, the new and previous owners must agree who will pay the weight-based vehicle tax. Both are responsible for ensuring that the tax is paid. The Tax Administration will not split the vehicle tax between the new and previous owners.
What happens if the weight-based vehicle tax is not paid?
If you do not pay the vehicle tax by the payment deadline, you will have to pay a tax surcharge. If the tax remains unpaid, the vehicle's number plates may be removed. The new owner is also responsible for the most recent amount due, and the demand may also be collected from the new owner.
If you have a large number of vehicles, you will be sent a summary of all the vehicles that are registered under your company's organisation number. It is possible to pay the total amount due under a single KID number. Contact the Tax Administration.
If you are not covered by this scheme, you will have to pay each invoice separately.
