CGL20161109_11_13_11 law 15/2016, 20 October, to amend the law 4/2016, of 10 March, to promote electric vehicle law 15/2016, 20 October, to amend the law 4/2016, of 10 March, to promote electric vehicle since the General Council in its session of October 20, 2016 has approved the following : Act 15/2016, 20 October, to amend the law 4/2016, of 10 March, to promote electric vehicle exhibition of illustrations on 10 March 2016, the General Council approved the law for the promotion of electric vehicles as part of an overall strategy aimed at introducing vehicles with electric mobility in the Principality of Andorra and to develop sustainable mobility as far as less polluting vehicles.
One of the measures included in the aforementioned Act was to modify the law on the tax on vehicle ownership, of 5 April 1994, to encourage little polluting vehicles site at the expense of more pollutants, and with the premise of maintaining the current collection. In particular, the new basis of taxation of the rate for cars and vans the made up the level of CO2 emitted per kilometre, in replacement of the power of taxation (fiscal horses), for all vehicles registered as of January 22, 2009, the date from which the level of CO2 emissions must appear in the yellow card. Likewise, in the case of the vans, they set up a reduction of the rate on the possession of vehicles during the first and second successive tax periods since the entry into force of the law, that is to say, for the years 2017 and 2018, 50% and 25% respectively. This reduction was intended to meet a certain equivalence in the collection of the tax on the possession of vehicles for vans, in the change of power at level of CO2 emissions in the basis of taxation, and, in any case, benefit to the owners of the less polluting vans to the detriment of the most polluting, since, in the majority of cases , the change of basis increased the overall taxation and penalitzava in particular the owners of vans with a capacity of less than fiscal tax 10 horses.
However, the writing of the transitional provision of law 4/2016 differed not applying this reduction among vehicles registered before January 22, 2009, that they would continue are recorded on the basis of the power of taxation, and enrolled at this date, which were to pay for the tax on the possession of vehicles according to the level of CO2 emissions. In this way, all the vans would benefit, is not justified in accordance with the objectives mentioned above, a reduction of the rate on vehicle ownership of 50% the year 2017 and 25% in the year 2018, when this reduction only had to apply to vans recorded on the basis of the level of CO2 emissions.
To correct this and return to the initial objective of the measure, modifies the transitional provision of law 4/2016, of 10 March, to promote electric vehicle, specifying that the reduction of the rate on the possession of vehicles type vans, during the first and second tax periods, only affects the owners of vans in the yellow card which is the level of CO2 emissions.
At the same time it has been considered appropriate to specify, in case of doubt on the application of article 5 of the law on the tax on vehicle ownership, the cases in which the tax base is calculated in accordance with the fiscal power and cases in which it is calculated according to the level of CO2 emissions. So, the modification of the article mentioned makes it clear that vehicles of type tourism and van cleared the rate over the possession of vehicles according to the level of CO2 emissions when in the yellow letter appears on this information, that is to say, in vehicles registered as of January 22, 2009, and depending on the fiscal power when in the yellow card there appears the level of CO2 emissions.
Finally, the law incorporates two final provisions, the first of which was entrusted to the Government the publication of a new revised text of the rate over the possession of vehicles, and the second sets the entry into force of the law.
