Mary Braim’s response (Revenue response to CO2 car tax story) doesn’t defog the situation for me. Having read the article in Accountancy Age (Company car tax system faces chaos), I then looked to reply to the Inland Revenue’s request for information from our company regarding company cars. I first visited the SMMT site and carefully noted exactly which options were selected for each vehicle and the resulting CO2 figure.
Wary of the accuracy of the figures retrieved (and therefore wanting a second opinion), I decided to check the Vehicle Certification Agency site, which was also suggested on the Inland Revenue form. Again, I carefully noted exactly which options were selected for each vehicle and the resulting CO2 figure. For three of the four vehicles the two sites quoted different figures!
I then sent a letter to the Inland Revenue asking it to confirm which data source I should take as definitive. I am still awaiting a response.
Fog lights still definitely on here!
