Proposed new govenment tax

Post by Slartibartfast » January 10th, 2013, 10:16 pm

Tax on hire cars
The Spanish government are proposing to bring in a new tax on car hire. As fas as I can ascertain it will only effect the Balearic islands and not the peninsula.

It is proposed to levy from 3.00€ to 9.00€ per day per car. The exact cost will depend on which emission band the car you get falls in.

I would think that most car hire company's will have to charge the tax when the car is actually picked up as it is impossible to know in advance which car any customer is getting until the day. Cars of the same make and model have differing emission, so even though may have ordered a group B car, the tax on one group B may well differ from another car in the same group.

I have just received a phone call informing me that the new tax on car hire proposed by the Balearic islands government has been cancelled. It is not known yet if has been cancelled for this year only or for good.

Any more news I get on the subject I will post as soon as I get it.
