Can I tax a commercial as a private SUV?

Hi

I'm hoping you can help me with something. I recently found your crew cab and commercial article and found it very interesting. I'm currently in an odd position. I'm looking for a crew cab SUV that would be used for work and domestic but I am not a registered business. So the crew cab would need to be reverted back to the original (much higher) tax bracket. I've heard that a PPS number can be used as a tax number and that would be the main hurdle handled. I was wondering if you or your readers have any experience doing this?

The last thing I want is buying an SUV only to find out I can't tax it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Tom

Hi Tom,

Apparently it's quite easy to tax a commercial vehicle as a private one, simply by informing your local motor tax office. Beware, however, of the challenge of insuring the vehicle, as many readers have told us that is a big issue for private drivers.
