In 2018, for & quot; horsepower & quot; will have to pay

In 2018, owners of expensive cars will face an unpleasant surprise. The fact is that the deputies of the lower house of the Russian parliament approved in the second reading amendments that increase the cost of excise taxes on powerful cars. The increase in prices for some vehicles (TS) will be tenfold.

New laws for powerful cars

If the amendments approved by the deputies come into force, then for each “horse” customers will have to pay an additional seven hundred to one thousand three hundred rubles. The exact amount calculated for each car will be included in the price of the new vehicle.

At present, car owners have to pay an additional amount, the engine power of which exceeds one and a half hundred “horses”. The average surcharge amount is sixty thousand rubles. Buyers who plan to buy a car in 2018 (or later) will have an unpleasant surprise. The fact is that their expenses on surcharge for vehicle power will be much higher.

For example, if we are talking about the "iron horse", the engine power of which is more than two hundred "horses", the expenses of the future car owner will increase by one hundred forty thousand rubles. A year later, the excise tax will increase by another ten thousand rubles, and a year later by five. More powerful cars, which hide from three to five hundred "horses" under the hood, will rise in price because of the increase in the cost of excise tax even more. The amount of surcharge is measured in hundreds of thousands of rubles. The maximum possible increase in the cost of a new car will be seven hundred thousand rubles.

 If the car is powerful, it means that it is expensive. Naturally, the most expensive cars go up the most. These vehicles include sports cars or premium sedans. Meanwhile, it will be necessary to pay more for some cars that are not included in the category of very expensive, but belong to the business class. These "iron horses" include: Audi A6, Toyota Camry, Ford Mondeo, etc. Of course, people with low incomes are not able to buy such a car, but middle-income citizens can easily afford to buy such a vehicle. It is thought that an increase in the excise on motor power will affect this category of people.

 Luxury cars are determined by the price, which begins with approximately five million rubles. Naturally, such “iron horses” are bought by rich people who, it seems, the excise tax increase will not worry much. Meanwhile, even rich people can not buy a car if the salon does not give them a discount.

If we talk about cars in the price range from two to five million rubles, then the future owners of such “iron horses” will hardly be happy with the increase in excise taxes. It is possible that car dealers will take into account the wishes of consumers. For example, at present, some dealers are interfering with certain settings of sold vehicles. This is done in order to reduce engine power, which will allow the buyer to save on vehicle tax. Data on all changes are made to the TCP. Experts believe that this practice will be continued in order for the buyer to pay less on the excise tax for a powerful motor.

 Parliamentarians believe that the increase in excise taxes on engine power will bring about fourteen billion rubles to the treasury. On the scale of all of Russia, the amount does not seem great, but the main idea of ​​these amendments, in the opinion of parliamentarians, is not to fill the country's budget, but to a small extent, but reduce social inequality. Statistics in this matter on the side of the developers of the amendments.

According to the statistics, in our country there are about fifty million vehicles, of which about seventy thousand have an engine capacity of from two to five hundred "horses." Of the seventy thousand of these cars, about one in ten belongs to the category of very expensive vehicles. It turns out that the whole burden of raising excise taxes will fall on seventy thousand car owners, of whom the seven thousand richest motorists will pay the most.
