# New NOx VRT levy

• Registered Users Posts: 2,445 ✭✭✭

In his case, out of his arse.

For the correct numbers, you can find the correct NOx values from a site such as https://www.nextgreencar.com/ and then calculate it using this table:

Amount payable per mg/km
The first 0-60 mg/km: €5
The next 20 mg/km or part thereof up to 80 mg/km: €15
The remainder above 80 mg/km: €25
The NOx charge will be capped at a maximum of €4,850 for diesel vehicles and €600 for other vehicles.

Checked the Volvo S90 T8 plug in and it’s saying NOx is zero? Surely only a Bev could be zero

"Amount payable per kg/km" is the important bit.

Does anyone know what will happen if/when Brexit goes ahead in terms of importing a car from the UK. Will there be other taxes/tarriffs in addition to VRT and this NOx levy? Will it be simply prohibitive to import?

If withdraw agreement is passed on Friday then UK would as it it was inside EU for another year. What happens after transition period is up to EU and UK to negotiate.

Does anyone know, If a car for example, is imported December 2019 and a VRT booking is not until January will it be liable for the new nox charge ?

Probably very little if it’s actually a 2017 car. Might be 2/300 but the VRT on diesel is dropping my a percent in Jan anyway so should balance out.

Cheers. Looking at changing in the new year. Slightly off topic, but is diesel still a good shout for me? Do about 500km each week, mostly motorway driving.

The Octavia I'm interested in up north has emissions of mg/km 106, which according to that new nox table will work out at €1250!! Am I working that correctly?
60x5
20x15
26x25=€1250

Youre looking at the CO2 not the NOX

The NOX will be on the V5 and it should read something like .032 etc

• Registered Users Posts: 23,704 ✭✭✭✭

If you check here

https://www.nextgreencar.com/emissions/make-model/skoda/octavia+hatch/#manu-results

It’s 28-32. I checked a VRS recently and it was 32

Ah OK, I thought it was based on co2 emissions. Is there any Irish site that can give definite figures? That's probably being way too ambitious!

No, you need to ask for a Copy of the V5 to be 100 percent certain because the car could be a 2015 model registered in 2017 etc

Also remember the VRT on diesels is dropping down by 1 percent in January so in reality one should balance out the other.

You would be safe enough taking the VRT off the cacluator as near enough your final bill including NOX. Just make sure you see the V5 before you confirm a deal

Was looking through VW's website there and a GTI has a slightly lower nox than the 1.5 TSI, that can't be right?

I'm buying a 500se 92 from the UK and bring in before end of year. Unfortunately there are no available dates in the country for an appointment before year end. Do I appeal the new nox tax levy then in Jan?

I doubt that you will be able to appeal, the regulations won't be changed because you bought too late in the year to clear it. Your only hope is to get a cancellation before the new year.
