New Vehicle Prices after Budget for 2016

As expected the new government budget for 2016 introduce new valuation system for imported vehicles, this valuation lead to increase prices of imported vehicles by Rs. 200,000 up to Rs. 2.5 million.

The new valuation system was introduced recently taking full option manufacturers price as the tax base and the Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said  in budget proposal that this is to further strengthen this process of collecting the payable taxes said that the unit rate of excise duty for the vehicles on the basis of cubic centimeters and duties on the percentage basis on certain vehicles would be revised.

Automobile sellers has indicated the main selling automobiles like Nissan leaf, Suzuki WagonR, Suzuki Alto, Suzuki K10, Toyota Aqua, Toyota Prius and Toyota, Nissan Van prices will be increase as follow

Nissan Leaf Electric Vechile by Rs 2.5 Million

Wagon R by Rs. 400,000/-

Auto & K10 by Rs. 250,000/-

Toyota Aqua by Rs. 500,000/-

Toyota Prius by Rs. 700,000/-

Van by 2.5 Million

Meanwhile, 2016 budget has reduced excise duty to 2.5 percent for the vehicles which are run entirely on Solar, Hydrogen or Helium.

And the Vehicle Entitlement Certificate for each vehicle was also introduced and therefore motor cycle and three wheeler is unchange, Rs.15,000 for a motor car and Rs.10,000 per vehicle for all other vehicles would have to pay as fee

Government allows import of high-powered motorbikes

The Government will allow the import of high powered motorcycles -from 450 cc to 1001 cc — upon payment of duty.

The decision by the Cabinet of Ministers overturns objections earlier by the Police that they did not possess such high capacity motorcycles to cope with an influx.

Ministers have decided to lift the restrictions imposed on the import of high powered bikes up to 1001 cc. They can now be imported legally and registered with the Department of Motor Traffic.

Last year the Government granted permission to register motorcycles with high capacity engines only for sports purposes. The approval of the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence was needed for such imports. Prior to that, the import of motorcycles with a capacity higher than 350 cc was banned.

Earlier, the police had expressed concern over granting of permission for high-powered motorcycles as they could be used for criminal activities and they could escape as the police did not have such powerful bikes. However, recently, the Police imported some 230 bikes of 600 cc capacity. But most of them have been distributed in and around Colombo.


New Vehicle Valuation and tax scheme will increase the prices of vehicles by Rs. 400,000 to Rs. 500,000

As news stated the Customs Director General Jagath Wijeweera inform the customs department is deciding on the value of brand new vehicles instead of accepting the declaration by the importers.

This has decisions has make in the detail investigation on vehicles importers undervalued the vehicle valuation while imports, its including few leading companies too.

This approach has reduced tax incomes to the government which is a considerable amount in total. Therefore the customs has set up valuation committee to determine the value of the vehicle and thereby impose the valuation tax.

The New taxation systems are expected to lead to a vehicle prices increase between Rs. 400,000.00 to Rs. 500,000.00.  But this system will help government to raise their tax revenue to the government.

It is expect to be applies for those who imported and yet to clear them.


Factors to Consider before and after implement this New Tax System – Personal Opinion

Before implement this new tax scheme

  1. Makesure it is not to impact to the law budget vehicles which are mostly purchases for the self-businesses or small businesses like three wheels, Small cars for Budget taxi and motor bikes.
  2. Understand the weakness and wholes in old tax systems and make alerts to income tax department or customs to be aware of those lopes whole.
  3. Consider the cost of living index and increase accordingly, rather increase just because of maximise revenue
  4. Take actions against those who violate and get penalties for their wrongful behaviour

After implementation this new tax scheme

  2. Rectifies all the lopes whole and avoid any fraud to comes in future
  3. Educate importers and customs about the new vehicle import tax system and avoid any under pricing in future
