Budget Day 2022: abolishing exemption from bpm vans
BPM exemption for vans
Exemption bpm vans. This means that with these new rules, business owners will soon have to pay tax (bpm) when they buy a van, and this will be based on CO2 emissions. Furthermore, the cabinet also wants the motor vehicle tax (mrb) for these vans to go up. In short: entrepreneurs may also start paying. The ultimate goal is to boost sales of environmentally friendly vans and more tax revenue.
Encourage fuel-efficient vans
The government says the following: “With the measures, the government wants to stimulate the sale of emission-free or very fuel-efficient vans. These ensure that entrepreneurs will pay bpm just like private individuals. The abolition of the entrepreneurs’ exemption therefore contributes to the simplification of car taxes. Moreover, it leads to more tax revenue. Furthermore, the measure is expected to reduce CO2 emissions. People will pay more tax for a conventional van than for an emission-free van.”
“As of 2025, entrepreneurs will pay bpm for a fuel-powered van. Also the mrb goes up by 15%”
Eliminate entrepreneurial exemption for vans
The Cabinet proposes to abolish the entrepreneur’s van exemption (entrepreneur’s exemption) from Jan. 1, 2025. The amount of the tax is determined by CO2 emissions. As a result, the registration of vans will now be subject to bpm depending on their CO2 emissions.
Motor vehicle tax (mrb) rate for vans up
Central government: “The motor vehicle tax (mrb) rate for entrepreneurs’ vans is going up. In 2025, the increase in mrb is 15%. In 2026, it involves a further 6.96% increase. How much a business owner pays in taxes depends on the type of van.”
This proposal is part of the 2023 Tax Plan. If the House and Senate approve this proposal, it will go into effect from Jan. 1, 2023. The Tax Plan is announced every year on Budget Day. The plans will then be debated by the House of Representatives and the Senate. By agreement, they usually apply from January 1 of the following year. Read all about Budget Day 2022!
