As of 1 September 2019, step 3 of the WLTP will be concluded. This means that a lot of type approvals will expire. In other words, cars with these type approvals have to be registered before September 1st 2019. Therefore, our customer support team made a brief summary of what to expect, but most importantly what to do.
How can we help?
To make this process as easy as possible, Network4Cars will help you with this transition. This means that we will proactively inform you whether to take action on the cars that you recently bought from us. We will do this by sending you an email with the VIN number of all cars that we sold to you of which the type approval number will expire, and have no registration in Europe. The only thing left to do for you is to register the vehicles before the 1st of September, and perform a double check on your other stock, bought elsewhere. If you are in doubt about your other stock, we will be more than happy to provide you additional information, even for the vehicles that you did not buy from us.
The team of Network4Cars has appointed Nicole as our WLTP specialist and customer support specialist, so if you have any question feel free to get in contact with her.
Manufacturers are still obliged to state both the WLTP CO2 value and the recalculated NEDC CO2 value on the Certificate of Conformity (COC). In some of our customer countries, the tax base is calculated based on the average CO2 emission of the car. The rules surrounding the WLTP allow the individual tax authorities to decide until when the NEDC CO2 value may be used to determine the tax base on a vehicle. The EU has decided that every country’s tax authority can decide this for themselves, therefore we ask you to check this with your local tax authority to make sure that this will not catch you by surprise.
However, please keep in mind that it is your own responsibility to register your unregistered stock in time.
