Annual road tax is charged for vehicles that are used to transport passengers or goods by road.
The tax is calculated based on engine power, which is expressed as horsepower, the number of engine cylinders or the maximum authorised mass, depending on the category to which the vehicle belongs.
Some vehicles are subject to a flat-rate tax or a special rate.
Cars, dual-purpose cars (breaks) and minibuses with an engine supplied, even partially, by LPG are subject to additional road tax.
