The new more expensive VED bands will apply to cars first registered on or after 1 April 2017, in a few days time.

My local Citroen dealer is sending out emails which imply that new AND used cars sold after 1 April will attract the new rate - if that is correct, if I have a £20 tax car and sell it on the new owner will have to pay the new rates, or if I buy a pre owned car it will cost me more in VED even if it was first registered before 1 April 17.

My understanding is different, it is/was that the old bands/payments will be unchanged for vehicles registered before that date - the old rate lives on with the vehicle regardless of ownership changes.

So - either the dealer had made a genuine error, is being economical with the truth to drum up trade, or I have got it all wrong.

Comments and clarifications welcome.

Best thing is to read the gov website and take it from there.

It looks to me like the changes do not affect second hand cars. There might be slight changes depending on the CO2, I can't comment on that.

I was also under the impression it applies ONLY to vehicles registered from 1st April 2017, with existing registered vehicles remaining as they are (excluding any normal small increases).

Thanks.

I had looked at the Government website but wondered if I had missed something. Looks like we all read it the same way so the sales guys at the local dealer are 'spinning' it somewhat.
