Deduct road taxes for your utility vehicle
Easiness to justifyFrequency1x per year
The registration tax on your utility vehicle is deductible up to 100%.
You pay road tax every year. This is now the responsibility of your region, whether Flemish, Walloon or Brussels.
It’s a pain, we know, but the good news is that if you use your utility vehicle professionally (which you probably should), you can deduct it.
Whether you can deduct registration tax depends on your business use
The clear advantage of utility vehicles is that they can be deducted at 100%, unlike other vehicles whose deductibility depends on the engine or CO2 rating. All the information is available here.
However, just because it’s a commercial vehicle doesn’t necessarily mean you can deduct 100%!
You can deduct 100% of this tax if, and only if, you use the van solely for business purposes. One way of proving this entirely professional use, in the eyes of a curious tax auditor, is to have an alternative that you can show for your private journeys.
Registration tax is also tax-deductible
Registration tax follows exactly the same logic. So don’t forget to deduct it and thus reduce your tax base by the amount of the tax ✨.
Don’t forget the other costs associated with your utility vehicle
If you have a utility vehicle, don’t forget to deduct all the costs relating to it – over and above regional taxes:
- Maintenance and repairs
- Parking fines
- Insurance costs
- Vehicle accessories
In Accountable, you can import your vehicle registration or road tax payment slip and file it under Vehicle > Utility Vehicles > Vehicle registration and road tax (utility).
