Hello,



I suspect this has been asked before but does anyone know what the car tax costs are at the moment? I have a 2 year old 1400cc petrol Opel and it was only 176 ytl last year - I hear it has gone up a lot this year.



Thanks.

It's based on the kerb weight of your car, to give you an idea here is an extract from Cyprus Today:



The rate for petrol engines with a weight of 1270Kg is 381ytl, 323.85ytl and 285.75ytl for a new, 5 year old and 12 year old car respectively. The bottom weight of the band before that is 1017kg and it's 305.10ytl, 259.34ytl & 228.80 ytl.

Thanks for that - it's gone up but not as much as I was expecting. At least I've got a decent idea now.



Thanks again.

Tony,

Normally the tax for diesels is roughly 1TL per Kg of kerb weight so I couldn't understand why yours was only 800TL. My husband says that it is because pickups have to be made available for military manoeuvres so you get a big discount. For that kind of discount they can use ours any time lol.

hi Aylin, Not heard that one before.....still if things shape up the way they seem to be going in this Island I will actually drop the vehicle off personally to the commandant lol

This is the second year I have paid the same amount of road tax, last year the total sum was 1750TL but 900 or so was the initial once off plate registration charge due after import.

Given that the import tax was only 3.5K this truck seems to have been a winning choice all round. Better look under the mud and maybe give her a polish occasionally!

Hi TonyE, Hope you don't mind me asking, how was the import tax so low and after registering it when did you pay the import.

Apologies to Brightlights, did not check who was logged in on the system...smack!

hi exroyal.

Story..I bought the vehicle in 2005 knowing the Ranger is a rebadged Mazda and so easy to get serviced, ran it in uk to depreciate a bit, drove over here in 2008 paid tax around a year later, in 2009. They have a mindset that says trucks are commercial vehicles, but there is a specific form for registering it as the equivalent of a private car which you should do. Ran it tax free for a year then paid the tax as the going rate.

The tax they calculated from their tables and the Glasses guide equivalent for commercial vehicles. I presume the used retail value of these vehicles is lower than private cars.

As you can probably gather I am a big fan of 4 x 4 diesels, and although sad to see my merc go when I retired, this is now the only vehicle type I would ever own here in the North. The additional road tax cost is nothing compared with the usefulness of the Ranger in this climate.

Thanks Tony, I have a Nissan Navara 2.5 Im thinking of bringing over but I thought based on the CC they would charge 4.02 USD on this alone before the additioal 40% of the value.

It would actually pay to visit the customs in nicosia on your next trip here, and ask them the question in person, they have the tables and I believe would do a quick calc for you.
