Can I add seats to my van?

For a van with (J) N1 (J.1) C (J.5) 2359 (V.7) 217: this vehicle is currently taxed at commercial rate. If the number of seats were increased from three to include two more in the back, what are the VRT implications and tax class implications in relation to cost for this conversion? The vehicle has been imported.

Hi Phil,

It depends on the specific vehicle. Some vans retain their N1 classification if converted to a crew-cab, so your best bet is to contact your local tax office to get the specific details for your van.
