A once-only grant for ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered and li­censed for per­sonal use

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Trans­port Malta dis­patched 6,827 ap­pli­ca­tion forms to own­ers of ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered be­tween 1 Jan­uary and 31 De­cem­ber, 2006. Own­ers el­i­gi­ble for tax re­fund are to sub­mit the form by not later than the 28 April, 2017.

As an­nounced dur­ing the last bud­get, the gov­ern­ment will be re­fund­ing the equiv­a­lent amount of VAT paid on the reg­is­tra­tion tax, less the one-time grant pay­ment in 2014 of ei­ther €110 in case of ve­hi­cles or €55 in case of mo­tor­cy­cles, Trans­port Malta said yes­ter­day.

One full and fi­nal pay­ment by cheque will be posted to the ad­dress in­di­cated on the ap­pli­ca­tion form in the com­ing months. Same process will ap­ply for all the ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered up to 2008.

The ap­pli­ca­tion form will only be pro­cessed if the form reaches Trans­port Malta by 28 April, 2017. Ap­pli­cants are to ver­ify details, fill in, sign and send the form by post or sub­mit in per­son to one of the fol­low­ing ad­dresses:

In the case of a de­ceased per­son, the heir should to­gether with the ap­pli­ca­tion form fill in his/her per­sonal details and in­clude a dec­la­ra­tion made by a no­tary pub­lic, con­firm­ing that he/she is the el­i­gi­ble per­son to ap­ply for the Scheme.

In the event of a per­son that reg­is­tered a ve­hi­cle be­tween 1 Jan­uary and 31 De­cem­ber, 2006 has in the mean­time changed res­i­dency and did not re­ceive such an ap­pli­ca­tion then one has to con­tact Trans­port Malta on the details be­low.

Fur­ther­more, ve­hi­cle own­ers who have reg­is­tered a ve­hi­cle for pri­vate use be­tween 1 May, 2004 and 31 De­cem­ber, 2006, are el­i­gi­ble for the scheme but had not ap­plied for the grant in the past, may also sub­mit the ap­pli­ca­tion form which may be ob­tained from Trans­port Malta, un­til 28 April, 2017.
