Road tax reduction for used cars first registered in another EU country


Road tax is set to decrease for owners of used cars that were first registered in another European Union country, according to a Finance Ministry circular issued on Thursday.

For instance, a 1.6L car registered in Greece in 2004, after its first registration in France in 2000, will pay road tax of 250 euros for 2017, against 265 euros in 2016.

The government has also announced there will also be some changes to the tax paid by owners of large old cars, in a bid to contain the phenomenon of owners submitting their license plates to the authorities to avoid the high road tax payment.
