ACEA Tax Guide 2001

This document is the 2001 edition of the study carried out periodically by the Liaison Committee on Automobile Manufacture since 1960 and thereafter by the Association of European Automobile Manufacturers.

The introduction attempts to define taxation peculiar to motor vehicles and the various taxes which they comprise. The following chapters review these taxes as they appear in the fifteen Member States of the European Union and in the countries of the European Free Trade Association.

These chapters have been compiled according to the information available for each country in December 2000.

We wish to extend our sincerest appreciation to the national associations of motor vehicle manufacturers for their major and steady contribution in the compilation of this work.
