UK’s HGV charge begins to accelerate

The HGV Road User Bill has passed its second reading and now proceeds to the Committee stage.

As previously reported by BIFA the Government is introducing legislation to impose road use charges for hauliers which will put the UK industry on a level playing field in relation to EU competitors.

The legislation, which is broadly supported by all political parties and many commercial interests, will introduce a new levy for all HGV’s weighing 12 tons and over that use the UK road network. The levy applies to all categories of public roads and both UK and foreign registered HGV’s. This proposal will be tax neutral for UK hauliers who will be able to offset the additional fee and pay it at the same time as the VED.

These road user charges will be subject to the Eurovignette Directive, which specifies a current maximum daily charge of €11 rising to €12 in 2014 which equates to £10 a day.

The driver will be legally responsible for ensuring that the vehicle that they are driving is covered, failure to do so will incur a penalty currently set at £200. Frequent noncompliance by a specific vehicle or haulage company could lead to a fine of £5,000.
