How is VRT calculated?
VRT is calculated in 3 ways depending on the type of vehicle being registered.
In most cases it is calculated as a percentage of a vehicle's Open Market Selling Price (OMSP) which is the expected retail price of the car as calculated by revenue.
In some cases it is charged as a set fee.
For motorcycles it is based on engine cc's.
