    Just a heads up to keep an eye on your tolls.

    4.30 is the charge for a goods vehicle between 2000 and 10000 kgs

    Correct Northbound that day.

    17/08/2020 17:31:16 Usage Charge N/A N/A 0.43 0.00
    17/08/2020 17:31:16 Toll Charge 201WXXXX M50 - SOUTHBOUND 4.30 0.00

    How is this even possible

    If you put your reg in to what tax rate does it say for your car?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,008 ✭✭✭ ei9go

    The basis of assessment (BOA) is the vehicle detail which facilitates the calculation of the appropriate motor tax fee, e.g. engine capacity or CO2 emissions for private cars, weight for goods vehicles. The BOA for the vehicle details entered is CO2 EMISSIONS
    The rates of taxation are as follows:

    Tax Band Annual Half Year Quarter Year Arrears (Per Month)
    0 - 1 120 66 33 12.00

    It’s happened to me in the past too over the years, thought my Avensis was a truck, assume just a glitch, just phone them and they adjust the toll amount no issue
