The measure

New measures will be introduced from the date below to reduce administration in the way VED is levied and paid. From this date motorists will be able to pay their VED by direct debit annually, biannually or monthly. In addition the paper VED tax disc will no longer be issued.

Who will be affected?

Motorists and businesses in the transport sector.


1 October 2014.

Our view

The VED tax disc is a longstanding badge for motorists but the way it is administered is outdated so the changes bring collection and payment of the tax up to date.
