Payment period

May each year.

Q&A

I passed my motorbike on to a friend, so why do I still have to pay tax?

Light vehicle tax is payable by the owner of the vehicle as of April 1st each year. If you do not transfer ownership of the vehicle (change the name of the owner of the vehicle) or complete the formalities for disposal of the vehicle by April 1st, the original owner of the vehicle will have to pay tax on the vehicle for the next year.

For example:

If A transfers ownership to B by April 1st, B will have to pay tax on the vehicle for the next year.If A transfers ownership to B on April 2nd, A will have to pay tax on the vehicle for the next year.
