    Definition

    • Goods carrying vehicle with a GVM < 3 tonnes (eg. ute, van etc)

    How to Calculate Fees Payable

    1. Rebates or Exemptions
    Determine if the client is eligible for any rebates or exemptions and adjust any calculations accordingly.

    2. Registration Fee (plus Fire Levy)

    • $66.20 + $16.00 = $82.20 normal rate
    • $34.55+ $11.00 = $45.55 pensioner rate

    3. Road Safety Levy

    • $25.00 normal rate
    • $15.00 pensioner rate

    4. Motor Tax

    Determine the number of engine cylinders or the type of engine (rotary, electric) and then the Motor Tax from Table 9, (See p8 Motor Tax Payable for  class "A" vehicles)

    5. MAIB

    Determine the MAIB Premium Paid (which includes GST and Premium Duty) from the MAIB Vehicle and Premiems Classifications Card, (refer to the  MAIB Vehicle and Premiums Classifications card).
     
    6. Inspection Fees for Registration

    Include the Vehicle Inspection Fee if the vehicle has been inspected by other than an Approved Inspection Station. See Inspection Fees.

    7. Registration Plate Fee

    Include the Registration Plate Fee for new registrations or if the vehicle is to be re-registered. Standard Plates are $19.40. If retaining existing number plates then no plate fee will be charged.

    8. Duty

    Duty is unique to each vehicle and is calculated on its market value.  Applicable only for registration issue, re-issue & registration transfers. See Appendix A. Duty Rates.
