More back-door taxation?
Reference the latest DVLA story ( CCW, 14 June), this seems like another case of back-door taxation. It would appear the DVLA changes the rules to suit its own ends – to pay the directors more money?
I am very surprised that the trade and press did not kick up more fuss when the DVLA changed the rules so car tax cannot be transferred to a new owner.
The Agency seems to forget it is the car that is taxed, not the owner. ❚ Nigel Slade, Worksop, Notts.
