Irrespective of car value, I thought the minimum VRT charge has been....€720...??...for ages now, so how you got a €400 quote escapes me ?

Or did I read the site wrong ?


Depends on the emissions:

CO2 Emissions (g CO2/km) VRT Rates Minimum VRT
0 - 120g 14% of OMSP €280
121 - 140g 16% of OMSP €320
141 - 155g 20% of OMSP €400
156 - 170g 24% of OMSP €480
171 - 190g 28% of OMSP €560
191 - 225g 32% of OMSP €640
226g and over 36% of OMSP €720

Ah, emissions..........nothing I'd buy would be that low down the scale!!

but this line is interesting, and must be up for a challenge For each rate the limit reflects a car with a value of approximately €2,000 from here: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/vrt/faqs-vrt.html#section24

....isn't that rigging of the system ?

Consider: go to DoneDeal, search for cars under, say..........1k. If you find your desired one, then, surely the OMSP is 'false' and could be challenged ??
