Mine is printed on the renewal notice I got recently. Does it not also say band on the disc? (not sure and car is too far away today to check!)

How much has it risen by in your case?
#11
I was a bit hasty :oops: didn't realize that was cars registered after 1st of March 2001 :thinking: my car was registered a few months before that so only gone up about £5 :-D which I can probably live with.
#12
The VED on the link above is still inaccurate.
Here is the new data (CO2 g/km is in brackets):

Band A: (<100): 0
Band B: (100-120): 35
Band C: (121-150): 120
Band D: (151-165): 145
Band E: (166-185): 170
Band F: (186-225): 210
Band G: (226>): 400


2009 (new system!):
Band A (<100): 0
Band B: (101-110): 20
Band C: (111-120): 30
Band D: (121-130): 90
Band E: (131-140): 110
Band F: (141-159): 120
Band G: (151-160): 150
Band H: (161-170): 175
Band I: (171-180): 205
Band J: (181-200): 260
Band K: (201-225): 300
Band L: (226-255): 415
Band M: (256>): 440

2010/2011 (first year/next year):
Band A (<100): 0/0
Band B: (101-110): 0/20
Band C: (111-120): 0/35
Band D: (121-130): 0/95
Band E: (131-140): 115/115
Band F: (141-159): 125/125
Band G: (151-160): 155/155
Band H: (161-170): 250/180
Band I: (171-180): 300/210
Band J: (181-200): 425/270
Band K: (201-225): 550/310
Band L: (226-255): 750/430

I LOVE MY YARIS EVEN MORE NOW! £35 a YEAR :-D
#15
I love my Prius even more :) 15 quid road tax.

However, my Mondeo will be taxed 210 quid this year and 300 next one. Toyota! Where the hell is new Prius with 120 mpg????
#16
My bicycle doesn't get taxed at all this year. I should use it more.
#17
Good job I taxed the wife's car online this morning :lol:

Don't know what people moan about, £185 for a 3l v6 Alfa sounds reasonable to me :giggle: Even more tempted to buy one now, if only I could afford the petrol PMSL.
#18
Well... I don't think it is fair that basic no-frills petrol 2.0 Mondeo should attract tax of 300 quid next year. I guess I'll change my car this year. Maybe :(
#19
Mine's dropped £25, woohoo.

How's that? This year there is only increase in tax, not decrease?

In the new system my car falls into £90 a year.
#22
Ah, got it. Pity it is in 2009, not 2008.

Thanx i'm band c to!!:cry:
#26
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Mines is due this month, have my form here, and it says
"The earlist you can apply for a Tax Disc is 15.03.08"

And the new rate takes effect tomorrow, 13th.

£120 instead of £115 but its a fiver better in my pocket than those robbing gits. :x
#27
Same with me :( I received Road Tax paperwork last week and was waiting for 15.03.08. It was 205, now I have to pay 210 :(
#28
My Astra is band D I think, so a small increase. That's not a problem though because my tax bill is set to fall by around £370 due to the income tax/NI changes. Woo!

It doesn't work like that. Either your late for paying your tax from the previous month, or your going to need to pay extra for this month...(if it's gone up...)
#30
One of my cars is a company car. Although I don't have to pay road tax I get hammered with income tax. You guys are getting off lightly :)
#31
You could do what many people are doing (myself included) - quit your company car scheme and use your own car for business :)

Thanks. I have thought about it, but I can only opt out If I own a car less than 5 years old (which I don't).
I also travel about 40,000 per year and don't want to do that sort of mileage in my own car.

But your right it is an option and I may look at again in the near future.

I have a 1.8 diesel so I assume I'm the 185 quid one, my car is an x reg so before 2001 isn't it? Anyone know how much I paid before? I thought it was 180, so maybe gone up 5? That's only about 2% which is the rate of inflation anyway.

Actually it does work like that. Online you can apply from the 11th of the previous month.
#36
Just getting my head around this stuff. My car's a 1998 model so I assume no reductions apply to me and I'm gonna be hit by a slight increase. Such an economical little thing too. :roll:
#37
according to that site my car tax has gone up by £20 and thats just the 6th month one!
