Since 1 September 2019, motorhomes are captured by the same VED regulations as light passenger vehicles. These reforms encourage the take-up of vehicles with low carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to help meet legally binding climate change targets. Transport is the largest sector for UK greenhouse gas emissions (27%), of which road transport accounts for over 90%.
Whilst the Government recognises the concerns of the leisure industry, tax is only one of many factors impacting purchasing decisions. Like all taxes, the Government keeps the VED treatment of motorhomes under review. Any changes will be considered by the Chancellor and announced at fiscal events.
