Is this tax right for a 2016 Ford Kuga?

Hi there.

I have a 162 Ford Kuga and my tax per year is €710. This seems very high for a 2016 car. Am I missing something?

Need some advice on using a VW Transporter...

Hi there.

I set up as a sole trader last year (Oct '19). I'd like to swap my Ford Focus for a VW Transporter. A Kombi version most likely. I'm a photographer, but it would be for personal use and to transport my dogs with me. I don't deal with people directly in my business. I operate online. I really need some advice, as I want to move on with new projects. How can I tax and insure it to allow me to enjoy the next chapter?

Thanks a mil

Motor tax for imported Defender Utility?


I have a Land Rover Defender 110 Utility, which is classed as a commercial vehicle in the UK with road tax of £240 a year. I use it for personal use and want to bring it home to Ireland. I've owned it for more than six months. It's in Band G for CO2 emissions so I'm horrified to see the motor tax in Ireland for it is €2,350. But, your article says if it's commercial and personal use it's a different scale. It has a 2.2-litre diesel engine. Do you know how much the tax is?
