Question:

Donnelly asked the Minister for Finance the total amount of revenue raised for the Exchequer from vehicle registration tax for 2013 and the revenue expected to be raised for 2014 if there is no change to the rates and there is no change to the vehicle categories and to provide, in tabular form, a breakdown of the revenue and expected revenue for 2013 and 2014 respectively by category of vehicle; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Finance)

The most recently published fiscal forecast was contained in the SPU in April. The VRT estimate underpinning the 2013 excise forecast was c. €480m. If there is no change in the VRT rate, the estimate for 2014, as per the SPU, is c. €490m. It should be pointed out that these figures may be comprehensively revised in the context of the White Paper and Budget 2014 as emerging fiscal and economic data are taken on board.

It is not possible at this time provided to give a detailed breakdown of expected revenue per category of vehicle. However, the Deputy might like to know the breakdown of VRT by category for the previous four years.
