Car­a­van Re­gos to go cheaper

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Grey no­mads, fam­i­lies and ad­ven­tur­ers in NSW are set to ben­e­fit from a ma­jor re­duc­tion in their car­a­van or camper trail­ers reg­is­tra­tions.

Im­por­tant: The above ve­hi­cle tax ex­am­ples are in­dica­tive only Mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax com­po­nent for pri­vate car­a­van and camper trail­ers Sub­ject to ad­di­tional reg­is­tra­tion fees and charges.

Mem­ber for Al­bury Greg Aplin said the mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax for pri­vate car­a­van own­ers will be re­duced by 40 per cent from 1 Novem­ber.

“The mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax re­duc­tion for pri­vate users is part of a suite of mea­sures be­ing in­tro­duced by the NSW Gov­ern­ment to de­liver sav­ings to con­sumers, in­clud­ing the Toll Relief pack­age, the $100 Ac­tive Kids re­bate and the Green Slip re­funds,” Mr Aplin said.

“The NSW Gov­ern­ment recog­nised the need to re­duce costs as­so­ci­ated with these pop­u­lar ve­hi­cles, and this re­duc­tion in mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax will al­low peo­ple to spend their money on the things they love – in­clud­ing camp­ing and car­a­van­ning around NSW.

“The change will ap­ply to towed car­a­vans and pur­pose-built camper trail­ers weigh­ing up to 4.5 tonnes, putting a sav­ing of up to $471 back into the pock­ets of hard work­ing fam­i­lies across the state.

“Light ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing car­a­vans at­tract a mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax based on the ve­hi­cle’s weight.

“This tax is part of the cost as­so­ci­ated with reg­is­ter­ing a ve­hi­cle in NSW, but el­i­gi­ble car­a­van own­ers will ben­e­fit from a re­duc­tion. Not only will this put money back into hip pock­ets, it will en­cour­age more peo­ple to do busi­ness in NSW.

“The good news for NSW pen­sion­ers is that those with a car and car­a­van who are el­i­gi­ble for a free reg­is­tra­tion can now have a 40 per cent re­duc­tion on their car­a­van,” Mr Aplin said.

Towed car­a­vans and pur­pose-built camper trail­ers that are pri­vately reg­is­tered will be el­i­gi­ble for the 40 per cent re­duc­tion in mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax. Cus­tomers will still be re­quired to pay the stan­dard NSW reg­is­tra­tion fees in­clud­ing the an­nual fee of $65.
