Thinking of buying an L200 for private use...


I am looking at buying a 2008 Mitsubshi L200; it's registered as a commercial vehicle with the current owner. I will buy as a private customer, so I will have to change the class of the vehicle. Do you know how I would go about this as I cannot get a quote for insurance until the class is changed and don't want to go ahead and buy if the insurance will be through the roof. Also, how much would the tax be yearly?

Thank you

Is my car loan deductible against tax?


As a sole trader I use my private car to do 30,000km a year. I’d like to change my car. If I take a loan out to purchase a car is a percentage of the monthly repayments deductible against tax and, if so, is there an upper limit or any drawbacks to doing this from a tax perspective, e.g. benefit in kind?

Many thanks

Is a previously N1 Touareg this costly to tax?


T have a 2016 Volkswagen Touareg that is registered as N1 and I want to change it to M1 and I can, but they tell me that because it was N1 when first registered that my car tax will still be on engine size not CO2, so I will have to pay €1,500 when an identical car can be taxed for €750. I would be grateful for any advice you can give me on this.

We have a 1,500cc Berlingo van for social and domestic use. It is 2014. We have been charged €514 to tax it. Surely this cannot be right?

Thank you
