Car Tax

Hi All,

Just a quick question - We want to buy an *very* old Golf (1987) and its a 1.8litre

Does anyone know what the cost of the annual road tax is, or where to find a tariff list?


Thanks

Re: Car Tax

Look here, you'll see the tarif per cc capacity. It might be different for something that age though, give the STVA (Strassenvekehrsamt = DVLA in the UK) a call, they're usually pretty helpful:

Re: Car Tax

Zurich and Basel charge by engine size http://www.mfk.bs.ch/steuern/index.html

Some cantons charge by unladen weight, Bern does,

Nah .... Fribourg vehicle taxes are calculated by the number of priests and nuns that can be squashed inside.

They are a little generous, not all are qualified...

Detailed information on what?
How many priests and nuns can be squeezed in a car in Fribourg?
Or how much to tax a car in your area?
Here is a clue. Strassenvekehrsamt.

Hi all! Unfortunately in Bern they charges by gross weight (Gesamtgewicht : http://www.pom.be.ch/pom/de/index/st...rrechner1.html) I was very surprise when I saw the bill!

Unless your car was delivered in a very big and very heavy box, the gross weight and the nett weight are the same.

Unless they count the transporter - then you're really in trouble.

I am sorry. I confused the unladen weight with the kerb weight. My car was brought here by helicopter, so no problem at all.

Cool! What's the tax on a helicopter like?
