The value of the vehicle is based on the price list issued by the manufacturer, and taking into account depreciation rates based on the age of the vehicle

  • A vehicle 6 months or newer is considered new and no deduction is taken.
  • A vehicle older than 6 months, but less than a year, is granted a monthly deduction rate of 2%
  • A vehicle 2 years to 5 years old will be granted a monthly deduction rate of 1%
  • The value of the vehicle (as calculated above) plus the cost of the freight and insurance is how the customs tax is calculated.
