Autumn Budget 2017

Vehicle Excise Duty


Introduction of the Diesel Supplement

Purchasers of diesel cars registered on or after 1 April 2018 that do not meet the real driving emissions standard will see an increase of one Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) band in their First-Year Rate. This will apply to any diesel car that is not certified to the Real Driving Emissions 2 (RDE2) standard.

Cars which are certified as meeting the Real Driving Emissions 2 (RDE2) standard under Annex IIIA of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1151 will be exempt from the diesel supplement. This will be set in legislation at a value of nitrogen oxides (NOx) no greater than 80mg/km.

The RDE2 standard sets a maximum permitted level of car NOx emissions in real world driving situations. Cars must pass the certified level of NOx emissions irrespective of the driving behaviour during the test – for example, this will account for the effect of driving uphill.

Individuals will pay more in First Year VED Rates depending on the vehicle they choose, e.g. someone purchasing a typical Ford Focus diesel will pay an additional £20 in the First Year, a VW Golf will pay £40, a Vauxhall Mokka £300 and a Landrover Discovery £400.

What's the best thing about Dodd & Co? They are there when you need a question answering and, if not available, always return a call.  Nothing is too much trouble. Dodd & Co have been our accountants for many years and hopefully many more to come.  We have a wonderful relationship with Ian Brown & Bevan Osgood and if we speak to others they are always friendly and helpful or pass you to whoever can help.  We are not in the area, but this does not pose a problem with emails etc.  An excellent accountancy firm.
