VEHICLE ROAD TAX CHANGES

It's now 2017, which means the new rules for VED (Vehicle Excise Duty) or road tax are set to come into effect very soon. This means big changes to the system including a switch up to new road tax bands which will affect anyone buying a new car from April 2017.

The big question for new car buyers is this: is it better to wait until April 1st, or is it more cost-effective to change cars before the new regulations come into force? The answer depends entirely on the vehicle you plan to buy and most importantly, its CO2 emissions.

For more details and to help explain this, please click on the video here:-
