How much extra to pay tax quarterly?

A 3.5-litre car has a road tax of €1,809. How much does it cost if it is paid every quarter? And what is the APR?

Hi Thomas,

Well, APR isn’t actually charged on motor tax, but you will pay extra if you’re paying by the quarter — which is, I guess, a form of interest one way or another. The rate for a 3.5-litre car on the old engine capacity system is €511 per quarter, so you’re paying an extra €235 overall.
