As a result of a technicality under new EU regulations, new motorhomes with a WLTP Euro 6D/2 engine are no longer subject to a commercial vehicle tax band in the UK. Instead, they are, for the purposes of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), now taxed as a car. This will have a devastating effect on the motorhome industry. There will be a substantial fall in British manufacturing, a collapse in demand for new products, and associated job losses throughout the supply chain.
There are three different ways to add your support to the campaign to help reclassify motorhomes as commercial vehicles and get a fair tax for new motorhomes.
The UK motorhome industry is asking for an urgent minor amendment to the Finance Bill to reclassify motorhomes as commercial vehicles for VED and avoid a catastrophic reduction in sales, a drop off in production, impact upon UK staycations and associated job losses throughout the supply chain.
