VAT on car registration


A few weeks ago we announced that the Government will be refunding the full amount of VAT paid on the registration tax to vehicle owners who had a vehicle registered between the 1st May and 31st December 2004.  3,308 were eligible. 2,406 submitted their application.  This scheme will be available until the 31st July.

There will be one full payment by cheque. The same process will be adopted in the following years, until all payments for the eligible applicants up till the end of 2008 are settled.

Transport Malta notified the eligible applicants who registered their vehicle between 1st May and 31st December 2004.  Those who received the notification should verify the personal details, sign and send the application to Transport Malta.
