Showroom Tax Rates 2012

Showroom Tax was introduced into the UK on 1st April 2010. Showroom Tax is effectively the Road Tax Price you will pay in the first year of ownership of a brand new car. The question of whether the new Showroom Tax will be friend or foe depends on the emissions of the new car you buy. Showroom Tax penalises high emission cars and encourages ownership of low emission Road Tax Band A to Band D cars (for a full list of these cars read Free Showroom Tax) which, under the new legislation, will be FREE to drive in the UK for the first year in terms of Road Tax. You can read more on Showroom Tax and see how different models of the same car can vary here - Showroom Tax Explained.
