6Motor Tax – Heavy vehicles

About the Heavy Vehicle Motor Tax

From the 1st of July 2016 the motor tax charged for heavy vehicle in all states and territories of Australia (except Western Australia and Northern Territory) will have two parts;

  1. a road use charge to recover the costs of road wear and tear (retained by States and Territories), and;
  2. a regulatory component to fund the operations of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR)

For a breakdown of the new charges and a description of the different heavy vehicle types refer to the Breakdown of Motor Tax below.

What is the NHVR?

On the 10 February 2014, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) commenced allowing the National Heavy Vehicle Regular (NHVR) to undertake a number of heavy vehicle regulatory functions on behalf of states and territories. The NHVR is based in Queensland and is Australian’s independent Regulator for all vehicles over 4.5 tonnes Gross Vehicle Mass.

Why has the change occurred?

In November 2012 the Transport and Infrastructure Council (i.e. State and Territory Ministers) directed the National Transport Commission (NTC) to undertake a comprehensive review of the heavy vehicle charging system. In May 2013 the Council endorsed the NTC proceeding with a charges Determination on  the basis of its review recommendations.

As part of the commencement of the HVNL the intergovernmental agreements between the Commonwealth and States and Territories provided that the ongoing costs of the NHVR would be recovered from the heavy vehicle industry through registration charges.

The NTC conducted an extensive national consultation. For more information - Regulatory Impact Statement.

The heavy vehicle charges in Tasmania are contained in The Vehicle and Traffic Act 1999 and the amendments to this Act to reflect the new charges have been passed by both Houses in the Tasmanian Parliament.

How is motor tax calculated?

Currently the motor tax heavy vehicle pricing in Australia is based on a pay as you go (PAYGO) cost base that includes a fixed annual registration charge (collected by jurisdictions) and a fuel-based road user charge (collected by the Australian Government).

PAYGO aims to recover the attributable costs of road wear and tear for each vehicle type, and a share of common costs which benefit all road users.

Heavy vehicle charges from the 1st of July 2016 will initially be set under the Heavy Vehicle Pricing Determination and adjusted annually to enable charges to keep up with expenditure.

Why are the prices different for each vehicle type?

The current methodology for calculating the road user charge reflects historical average network-wide costs attributable to heavy vehicles. However, recovering costs in this way does not reflect the actual costs imposed by an individual truck on a particular route. This limits the extent to which existing road-user charging provides incentives for the efficient use of the road network.

The Determination updates the assumptions and methodology on which charges are based using data, and changes the way charges are allocated across the articulated vehicle fleet to better represent the load carrying capacity that results in wear and tear on roads.

This has resulted in a reallocation of charges among heavy vehicle types with charges for some heavy vehicle types increasing and others decreasing.

Will I still be able to apply for 40% rebates of motor tax for heavy vehicles?

Tasmania will continue to offer the 40% rebate to eligible operators i.e. farming, interchangeable trailers and 3 axle buses.  The 40% rebate will be off both components of the motor tax (road use charge and regulatory component).

How can I find out more about the national laws for heavy vehicles?

For more information on the charges you can visit the National Transport Commission website at www.ntc.gov.au. For information on the National Heavy vehicle law (HVNL) you can visit the National Heavy Vehicle Regulators website - www.nhvr.gov.au or call - 1300 696 487.

9Periodic payments

Periodic registration provides the option for registered operators to register vehicles for a period less than 12 months. The period of registration can be changed when the vehicle's registration falls due for renewal or is re-registered.

  • Light Vehicles can be registered for 6 or 12 months
  • Heavy vehicles can be registered for 3, 6 or 12 months.

There are additional charges for registering vehicles for periods less than 12 months.

Periodic registration is not available to common expiry registration.

How to use the periodic payment formula

Periodic payments are normally calculated automatically on our data base. The formula is complex. It is based on the number of days in any given 3 or 6 month period. Each component of the total registration cost is calculated separately.

Formulae to calculate periodic payments

Periodic payments are calculated using the following formulae:

  • (FL + RF + RSL to nearest 5 cents) + MAIBF + MTF + Administrative Fee $8.10 ($4.05 for pensioners) = SUB TOTAL
  • SUB-TOTAL + plate fee + premium duty ($20.00) + Inspection (if required) + market value duty*(if required) = TOTAL AMOUNT PAYABLE

*Market value duty is unique to each vehicle and is calculated on its market value.  Applicable only for registration issue, re-issue & registration transfers, (See Duty Rates)

Detailed fee formulae

Registration, Road Safety Levy and Fire Levy

  • Fire levy - {N x (F/365*)} = FL
  • Registration fee - {N x (R/365*)} = RF
  • Road Safety levy - {N x (S/365*)} = RSL
  • Sub total (FL + RF + RSL)

Where:

  • N is the number of days in the period for which registration is sought. This total is determined by counting the first day of the registration period and including the last.
  • F is the Fire Levy fee for a period of 12 months.
  • R is the registration fee for a period of 12 months not including the Fire Levy.
  • S is the Road Safety Levy for a period of 12 months.
  • FL is the periodic Fire Levy fee.
  • RF is the periodic registration fee.
  • RSL is the periodic Road Safety levy.

Divide by 366 if 29th February falls in period.

10Common expiry

What is common expiry?

Common expiry allows companies and incorporated associations to select a date on which all of their vehicles’ registration will expire.

Are there any restrictions on the number vehicles with common expiry?

The minimum number of vehicles that can have common expiry is two.

There is no maximum limit.

How do I request a common expiry date?

If you wish to request a common expiry for your vehicles, you can:

You will need to provide:

  • Your client identification number
  • Company name
  • Your choice of expiry date
    • This can be any date other than February 29

What happens next?

You will pay pro-rata registration fees for each vehicle from their existing registration expiry date until the date you have chosen for common expiry.

After this, all vehicles will have the same registration period and renewal notices will be sent to cover all vehicles at once.

How do I calculate common expiry fees?

Common Expiry is calculated using the following equation:

_________(fees) x no. days to expiry_________365
(divide by 366 if 29th February falls in period)

=  Subtotal

Subtotal + plate fee + premium duty ($20.00) +
Inspection
(if required) + market value duty* (if required)

= Total Amount Payable
