You’ll already know that from 1 October 2014, the paper tax disc will no longer be issued or need to be displayed on a vehicle windscreen.
But did you realise that from the same date, when you buy a vehicle, the vehicle tax will no longer be transferred with the vehicle? The new owner will need to tax the vehicle themselves before they can use it. They will be able to tax the vehicle using the New Keeper Supplement (V5C/2) part of the vehicle registration certificate (V5C) at the Post Office, online or by phone.
If a taxed vehicle is sold after 1 October and DVLA is notified in the normal way, the seller will automatically get a refund for any full calendar months left on the vehicle tax.
At this stage we understand that those members that have been reclaiming tax remaining on ELVs entering their premises will now no longer be able to do so.
