Clarification: No change to Motor tax regime for commercial vehicles

There has been no change in motor tax regime for commercial vehicles.

The Department earlier this month issued a circular on the rules and regulations regarding motor tax for commercial vehicles, following an increase in the number of vehicles switching from private motor tax classes to commercial vehicle classes.

Owners of vehicles currently taxed for commercial purposes face no additional requirements regarding forms or declarations.

The  RF 111A Goods Declaration, which requires applicants to make a declaration the vehicle will be used for commercial purposes, has always been a requirement when first taxing a small commercial vehicle.  One change has been made to Form RF 111A  –   it now requires an applicant who is applying for a vehicle to be taxed at the goods rate to provide a Revenue registration identity number.   This is to help ensure that the appropriate rate of tax is paid.

Circulars on a variety of areas from planning  to councils are issued on a regular basis by the department, and this circular was in no way out of the ordinary.
