Charitable Organisations

Vehicles registered to a charitable organisation or a benevolent society are exempt from motor tax and duty.

Once your organisation is registered on our database as a charitable organisation, you are eligible to claim this exemption.

How can I register my organisation as charitable?

The organisation must be endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a charitable or benevolent institution and be recorded on our database as such.

This can usually be done by checking online the Australian Business Register or the Australian Charities and Not- for-profits Commission.

Contact us on 1300 135 513 or email vru@stategrowth.tas.gov.au and we will be able to assist you further.

Evidence of Identity will apply if your organisation has not been recorded on the Motor Registry database previously.
