Motor Tax Rates / Arrears

Motor Tax rates can be found on the Motor Tax Online website.  

Motor Tax Arrears are charged:

  • If a month or more has lapsed between the expiry of your last tax disc or Statutory Off Road Declaration and the month in which you want to tax your vehicle.
  • If a month or more has lapsed since the month of purchase of a vehicle that did not have a current tax disc and no Statutory Off Road Declaration has been completed within 21 days of purchase.
  • If you purchase a vehicle in a category you are not entitled to (e.g. disabled/island/taxi) then arrears may be due if a month or more has lapsed from date of purchase even if the tax disc is still current for that category.

Motor Tax arrears are charged at 1/10th of the Annual Rate (disregard Cent)

An Arrears receipt is issued when arrears are paid.
