Tax on deregistered vehicles

On 1 April 2018, the Slovenian Motor Vehicle Taxes Act (ZDMV) entered into force, introducing a tax on deregistered vehicles. It must be paid by the owners of vehicles who, one year after the vehicle is deregistered from the market, do not register it again or surrender it for decommissioning to authorized dealers.

The vehicle must be complete

The vehicle submitted for decommissioning must be submitted in full, as we are responsible for achieving 95% of recyclability of the vehicle.

We dry the vehicle first and remove hazardous liquids, then disassemble and sort the materials for which we ensure that they are properly processed in other plants.

At the same time, we take into account the waste management hierarchy.

Because we are committed to reporting and collecting data about the overall processing of the vehicle, including processing or recycling of materials outside our plant, the owners must bring us the vehicle with the same mass, as stated in the vehicle registration certificate.

Who has to pay taxes for deregistered vehicles?

The tax on deregistered vehicles applies to vehicles registered for the carriage of a maximum of nine persons with a driver (8 + 1), owners of vehicles for the carriage of goods with a maximum authorized weight of up to 3.5 tons and owners of three-wheeled vehicles (categories M1, N1 and L2e ). Owners of vehicles who will be deregistering a vehicle from 1 April 2018 will become liable for payment of this tax on 1 April 2019. The tax will be paid annually.

The vehicle owners may avoid payment of taxes in the following cases:

  • if it is evident from the register of registered vehicles that the vehicle has been placed in decommissioning in accordance with the regulations on environmental protection,
  • if you submit a police record stating that the vehicle has been stolen, or
  • in case you submit proof that the vehicle has been registered in another country.

The tax for deregistered vehicles is payable for a maximum of ten years from the last car deregistration. If the car is re-registered during that time, this time limit will start again at the next deregistration of the vehicle. However, the tax does not apply to vehicles with an oldtimer status. The purpose of the measure is for the owners to take care of the deregistered vehicles themselves, thus avoiding abandoning them in wild landfills in the nature, and therefore additionally polluting and spoiling the environment. In our company, when decommissioning the vehicle, we will also take care of environmentally hazardous substances and materials that burden the environment.
