Car taxes on new vehicle

Wonder if any of you can help on this one...

Having just moved over (1 June) to Nyon and having just leased a new (small-ish) car, the car seems to have everything sorted (vignette, emissions sticker etc). The only thing the garage didn't say is if I should be paying road tax in Vaud separately. They just said "everything is sorted".

Have I got the wrong end of the stick or should I be expecting a CHF 400 bill through from the local authority for the car tax? Would just like to avoid a surprise

Shortly after getting your number plates you will indeed get a road tax bill.

Thanks Swissbob. One of the things which I'm still getting used to here is how everyone just sends bills - instead of the UK where everything gets paid up front!

Just took delivery of my Tiguan on Weds

Presented with Road Tax Bill for CHF449 and the charge for the reg plates - nice !

I would factor the cantonal road tax into your budget for the car per month
