Car deal­ers say buy­ers are stay­ing away for fear of charges

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

have suf­fered a fresh blow due to ru­mors of an up­com­ing hike in road tax. The drop in vis­i­tor num­bers to car deal­er­ships has been de­scribed at up to 40 per­cent in the last three weeks, while re­ports that the level of tax payable will be linked to the com­mer­cial value of ve­hi­cles will, ac­cord­ing to deal­ers, not only see the sit­u­a­tion de­te­ri­o­rate fur­ther, but also also have the op­po­site ef­fect on the state cof­fers to that de­sired. Sec­tor pro­fes­sion­als in­sist that the Fi­nance Min­istry will need to fo­cus its at­ten­tion on road users who have not paid any road tax. Mar­ket es­ti­mates say this con­cerns a to­tal of 800,000 ve­hi­cles.
