Welcome to Next Green Car’s car tax microsite where you can find out everything you need to know about car tax in the UK. Since 2005, car tax, formally known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), has been based on vehicle tailpipe CO2 emissions to incentivise greener driving.
This microsite provides an overview of UK car taxation, the current tax rates by car tax band and the link with CO2 emissions, and the latest fuel duty rates. Also included are lists of all new cars which can be searched by tax band or by make and model, and information on planned tax changes due to come into effect in 2017.
To find the car tax for a specific new or used model, use the car tax calculator which provides the annual rates of 'first year' and 'standard rate' car tax for 2016/17. To search by tax band or model range, use car tax search.
