1 PROPOSAL of law No. 118/X explanatory memorandum this proposal of law on the comprehensive reform of the Portuguese car tax, approving the code of vehicle tax (ISV) and the code of the single tax (IUC) and abolishing, at the same time, the car tax, vehicle tax, road tax and the trucking tax. Undertakes, for the first time, a comprehensive and coherent reform of taxes linked to the acquisition and ownership of motor vehicles, figures marked over time by an abandonment, governed by legal texts without safe, systematic or originator principle clear. The reform that the present draft law embodies the result, therefore, the urgent need to bring clarity and consistency to this area of the tax system and of the need, more imperious, yet make it to the principles and environmental and energy concerns today mark the discussion of car taxation. The two new taxes now are created, the tax on vehicles and the single tax movement, are much more than the technical extension of the figures created in the years 70 and 80 that preceded, geared predominantly to the raising of revenue, indifferent to social costs resulting from motor traffic. Are something different, figures of the century in which we live, with which it is intended, of course, raise public revenues, but raise it to the extent that each individual causes to the community. The message that these taxes are now carriers is, after all, a message of social responsibility, that responsibility should always be free societies. In addition to the international commitments and the demands of energy policy, more urgent, compel us to this reform, it is expected that she contributes in itself to the transformation of mentalities and of routines, 2 for a clearer perception of the problems of the environment and a balance between the use of public transport and private transport. The achievement of a deep reform requires special care, the repeal and adaptation to various degrees, and fixation of transitional rules allowing their gradual application and adaptation of economic operators to the new tax regime which are subject, which explains the provisions that are leading to this Bill. The last Portuguese car taxation reform, carried out in 1987, was motivated by the need to adapt the national car taxation the conditions imposed by Portugal's accession to the European economic community. Was born so the car tax until today in force, a single-phase tax, levied on the release for consumption of taxable vehicles, which was dominant feature the take as tax base their engine capacity. The adoption of a cylinder capacity as tax base possessed the key advantages of security and simplicity, allowing easy tax calculation by the Administration and the operators in the sector, being largely impervious to fraud because the cylinder is a feature of the vehicles that is difficult to handle. Conceived in this way, the car tax came to know a very important growth at the end of the years 80 and 90 over the years, as the growth of the purchasing power of the Portuguese fed enlargement fast national car park. The car tax was represent a major portion of the Portuguese State tax plug-in, just in the last few years feeling some stagnation in the recipe, justified by the economic climate, the progressive saturation of the Park and the exhaustion of the debt capacity of households. By comparison with the car tax, is negligible the weight of taxes in Portugal on the automobiles in circulation. At this stage, coexist three different taxes, all of them annually. The municipal tax on vehicles, the most important, is a tax on the ownership of municipalities, due essentially by passenger cars and whose tax base is constituted by its engine capacity, as well as by age and type of fuel used. And circulation taxes are owed mainly by trucking heavy goods vehicles, based on your gross weight, number of axles and 3 type of suspension, in accordance with the Community law applicable in this field. There is no linkage between the three taxes, lack a common philosophy and are different settlement and collection procedures. Since some years ago who felt the need to change the costume of the car tax. The progress that the theory and practice of green taxation has known in recent times allows you to go further in this field, establishing a model of greater internal coherence and technical trouble, both upon innovative solutions at the international level if you have proposed and tested successfully. The first step in achieving such reform materialized soon in the State budget for the year 2006, whereby the car tax, while maintaining your wardrobe essential, joined on their tax base a component of carbon dioxide which is about 10% of the overall tax revenue. The change in the tax base is thus a key point of the reform now undertakes with the creation of the new tax on vehicles, whose decisive criterion passes over polluting capacity indicators of a vehicle. The second bottom line on car taxation reform that now takes place is the displacement of part of the tax burden from the time of purchase for the phase of the movement. Not being tax burden in Portugal about the car exceptionally high, compared to what exists in other countries, is exceptionally relevant to the weight that it assumes when buying, when faced with that features throughout the useful life of the vehicles taxed. As a result, the prices of automobiles in the Portuguese market, the propensity for buying vehicles partially exempt from tax or for the purchase of used vehicles registered originally in other Member States of the European Union, end-of-life already and with environmental equipment outdated. Being the tax burden currently focused at the stage of release for consumption, to move to a new single tax movement will allow a gradual reduction of the retail selling price, with the inherent national car park renovation. With this produces a coherent whole in form and in substance and, finally, between us, a tax on the movement of motor vehicles in line with what most modern 4 exists in countries that are close to us. Portugal, like most European countries, is faced with serious difficulties today of environmental and energy policy, resulting from the increase in oil prices and the unstoppable increase in the rate of motorization. The condition of about 60% of the energy consumed in the country originate in petroleum and the fact that more than two-thirds of this parcel respect to the transport sector reveal a great dependency on the international stage and an exhibition of the country to the uncertain future of fossil fuels. Visa also with this reform deepening the progress that, in recent times, has been done at the level of the tax administration, particularly as regards the management of a complete information system, organized and dependable. Passing automobile taxation to form a coherent whole, it is important to eliminate administrative and compliance costs, investing in prevention and control of situations of abuse and non-compliance. In the introductory text of each of the annexes to this Bill moves forward with a more precise explanation of the reasons justifying the replacement of old taxes by two taxes now are created, as well as the main technical and legal nature options that are carriers were heard the environmental associations and the associations representing the automotive sector. Should be promoted to hearing of the Government bodies of the autonomous regions, the National Association of Portuguese municipalities and the National Commission for Data Protection.

Seen and approved by the Council of Ministers of 15 February 2007 14 Prime Minister the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Minister Presidency 15 Annex I VEHICLE TAX CODE (referred to in paragraph 1 of article 1) With this comprehensive reform of car taxation aims mainly to change the philosophy and principles underlying the current frame leaving to face the automobile as an exceptional manifestation of wealth to look at it as a common tool of modern life that are associated with important social costs. It is intended, in other words, give rationality and social legitimacy to these taxes, linking them to the same principle of equivalence that justifies the other excise duties, approaching the weight of environmental burden, road tax and accidents caused by the taxpayers. For this purpose, it acts mainly on two fronts. On the one hand, the introduction of emission levels of carbon dioxide in the tax base of these taxes, and, on the other hand, the movement of a portion of the tax burden of the car tax for the phase of the movement. It is this very sense that going to the proposal for a directive presented on 5 July 2005 by the European Commission on the harmonisation of taxes on passenger cars (COM/2005/261/final), which points to the transfer of the tax burden levied on cars to the phase of the movement and to the conversion to carbon dioxide of 25% of the tax base of these taxes by the end of 2008 and 50% of the tax base to the end of year 2010. On the other hand, the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol has made urgent the need to contain the national emissions of greenhouse gases, most of which is due to the use of motor vehicles on private transport. In and out of Portugal, here is therefore aware that matter, for reasons of Justice elementary, make the polluter pay to the extent of the cost that it brings to the community, to prevent all of the community to do so instead. The resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 161/2005, of 12 October 1999 adopted measures to encourage the use of less polluting vehicles and technologies, as well as the National Program for climate change for 2006, approved by resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 104/2006, of 23 August, came expressly contemplate, 16 between the catalog of additional measures aimed at the fulfilment of the Protocol car tax reform and integration into its tax base component formed by carbon dioxide emissions in 60% of the amount corresponding to revenue in the year 2008, in order to induce consumers to opt for less-polluting vehicles, looking for, thus making themselves a tax instrument to combat pollution and implementation of the polluter-pays principle. The automobile tax is not, nor should it be, a neutral form of taxation, to leave untouched the choices of manufacturers and consumers. On the contrary, it must forward each other towards marketing and purchase of less polluting vehicles, intended to renew the national vehicles always in the direction that best befits the rational exploitation of our natural resources. The production of environmental costs constitutes the rationale fundamental to the existence of special taxes on vehicles, in addition to value added tax, and therefore its calculation basis should not be in their commercial value but before polluting capacity. In these terms, the new vehicle tax takes much beyond the first step taken by the Government in the State budget for 2006, which dictated that the tax base of the car tax would be constituted also by levels of carbon dioxide emission of the taxable vehicles. The change in the tax base is thus a key point of the reform now undertakes with the creation of the new tax on vehicles. Today Science still in a phase of deep experimentation in this field, but it's safe since the displacement is not the best indicator of polluting capacity of a vehicle, and shall for that purpose be the elements of nature. Another important aspect, in terms of environmental impact, which does not neglect is related to the need for reduction of particulate emissions in vehicles with diesel engines, aware of the harmful effects that cause the public health level. In this sense, the tax reduction granted to vehicles that present levels of reduced emissions, in line with the recommendations of the European Commission and adopting the good practice already followed by some Member States. The rates of vehicle taxes are structured in such a way that the carbon dioxide component may represent about 30% of the revenue produced in 17 first year of application of the tax year beginning in July 2007, being expected to come to around 60% of that revenue in the second year in which the tax is applied. The levels of carbon dioxide emitted per kilometre already integrate the approval of new passenger cars at the community level, providing a secure and accurate indicator of air pollution that cause. Already with regard to other categories of vehicles, in particular with regard to freight cars lack the systematic collection of such data at the time of approval, for what is revealed immediately, impossible to tax them tax vehicles employing as tax base the carbon dioxide. It is expected, however, that the Office of mobility and land transport, I. P., pass to collect this information from the majority of vehicles and from 1 January 2009 to become possible to subject them to the same tax base, composed by cylinder capacity and by carbon dioxide, that applies to ordinary passenger cars. The tax on vehicles will take, so the final contours. The second bottom line on car taxation reform that now takes place is the displacement of part of the tax burden from the time of purchase for the phase of the movement. The tax on vehicles that now features the year created of his introduction, a weight about of 10% lower than that of the current car tax, and further reductions in subsequent years, but always assuming a transfer of this tax burden to the movement. The reduction of the tax burden at the time of purchase will not, however, identical for all vehicles. Less polluting vehicles shall, in General, of tax cuts above the average of 10%, while the most polluting vehicles could see their tax burden compounded by this reform. It will be up to consumers to make their choices more rational mode, now in the certainty that the acquisition of a vehicle more environmentally friendly is fiscally advantageous, either at the time of initial purchase, either throughout the entire phase of the movement. This shifting of the tax burden of the stage of release for consumption to the phase of the movement should be seen as a first step in a process that, in the light of the experience gained in its implementation could be pursued later. The 18 movement that so if you want to achieve a principle of budgetary neutrality in the medium to long term, it is not intended to generate tax above the fitting that produce taxes currently in force, but simply generate it with utmost rationality. Consequently, maintenance, also in the medium to long term, the recipe currently produced by automobile taxation constitutes a fundamental assumption of the ongoing reform. The adoption of a new code of vehicle taxes has formal status purposes quite relevant. The law on car tax is dispersed for a set of separate, segregated degrees over the years, whose handling has become, over time, of extreme difficulty for administrative services, for operators of the sector and to the taxpayers. The encoding now undertakes have thus aimed to continue the rationalization movement in this area of legislative tax system and harmonize with the principles, techniques and concepts that serve these tax figures. With regard to objective, the new tax on vehicles brings as major innovation widening of the tax base vehicles which until now were not subject to the car tax and whose subject to excise duty at the time of purchase is justified by the environmental costs, and that loss always roads associated with them. So with motorcycles and motor homes, integrated under the new tax incidence, still applicable to them less high tax rates at the lowest environmental cost and road they produce. Another domain where he sought to go as far as possible is the rationalization of tax rates, having established four levels of taxation, thus come with reduced rates and intermediate specificity that certain vehicles have, by their importance in the economic fabric and its fitness for the carriage of goods. The normal rate, on the other hand, applies to the majority of passenger cars and lorries, mixed use with a gross weight of less than 2 500 Kg. As regards the subjective impact of the new tax on vehicles, sought to approach your wardrobe's structure which is typical of the excise duty. Delimited better, the registered trader, the main tax taxpayer, associating him with clear rights and obligations, with 19 this is building the same relationship of trust and responsibility that characterizes the taxpayers of other taxes. Established, the pair, the operator recognized category, a category which seeks to frame the automobile trade companies who are not representatives of any tags or possessing, engaged in the admission or imports of new and used vehicles. Remove the existing constraints on these economic operators and provide conditions for the exercise of its activity under conditions of regularity and under the supervision of the customs administration. Also regarding the mechanics of the tax, sought to bring greater clarity and solutions approach characteristics of excise duty. The chargeable event and the moment he becomes chargeable constituted issues treated imprecisely in the context of the car tax, going on now that discipline them with greater accuracy, for the benefit of the Customs and economic operators. The rules governing the release for consumption were also processed more careful, now made in attention to different categories of taxable persons who are established in the new tax, seeking to take advantage of the experience gained by the customs administration throughout the years and convey clearly to the ancillary obligations incumbent on them. Despite the innovations that this reform is a carrier, keep most of the schemes and exemption procedures accompanying the old car tax, although subject to suitable systematization. The innovation in this field is mainly connected with the reinforcement of mechanisms to combat tax fraud and evasion, concern associated with the improper utilization of vehicles benefit from tax exemption, and the strengthening of social justice who presides over the granting of some tax benefits. So, new constraints are introduced and control rules with regard, for example, to exemptions associated with transfer of residence, seeking to guarantee in full the fair taxation purposes underlying them but looking ahead, at the same time, the fraudulent practices that in this field have been noted. At this precise sense that generalizes the burden of non-transferability of the vehicles which have been granted exemption by the 20 1 year period subsequent to the recognition of the benefit and whether it establishes, at his side, the burden of payment of the residual tax whenever your transmission after that first year and before expiry of the extended period of five years. In fact, a figure like the motor vehicle tax is both fair and effective as wider is your tax base and the tax benefits that take body at reduced rates or exemptions of tax under a tight control. The rationalisation of tax benefits in this area of tax system will, moreover, on par with the work of streamlining that has been carried out in the area of income taxation and heritage.

To the present moment, the movement of vehicles in Portugal was subject to three separate tax-the vehicle tax, road tax and the trucking tax-disciplined for legal texts produced at different times and that, over time, accused him of form and substance deficiencies. In its current form, the municipal tax on vehicles is a product of the years 70, having been conceived at a time when the Portuguese vehicles was still small and the automobile ownership still view as a sign of wealth. In the municipal tax on vehicles stand out, so social nature which concerns the time was stealing the Foundation, while show absent the concerns of environmental and energy policy that today as essential to these tax figures. Example of this are reduced tax rates for diesel-powered cars or the progressive reduction of the tax on the basis of the taxable vehicles age feature, originally designed as a form of solutions protecting the smaller contributors possessions but that stimulate and prolongs the use of less efficient vehicles and that pollute more. Notwithstanding the corrective measures that have been introduced in recent years in the municipal tax on vehicles, matter, with all urgency, reformulate this tax subject to concerns own the times we live in. Taxes and trucking, for their part, gained its current form in the years 90, in compliance with Community rules relating to the taxation of heavy goods vehicles, revealing more narrow figures but of greater rationality of municipal tax supported by most motorists. Indeed, the tax base used in the taxation of vehicles gross weight 12 tonnes or more, harmonised by Community law, is composed of elements capable of revealing the wear and tear that they bring to the environment and the road network, as its weight, number of axles and suspension type. More recently, age 73 of the vehicle was turned into aggravation factor, using a rate escalation that penalizes older vehicles. The very differentiation between the road tax and the trucking tax based on use for own account or for hire or reward goods vehicles, expresses the subordination of these taxes the most current energy policy purposes and transport, leaving see that these figures are less in need of reform that the municipal tax on vehicles. The introduction of the single tax movement brings an important simplification to this area of the tax system. The three taxes until now in force are merged in a single figure, by eliminating the morass that surrounded them, at the same time that harmonize technical solutions, concepts and terminology. The procedure of liquidation and payment of the tax is now completely dematerialized, passing to be carried out, in principle, to the Internet, with ensuring greater convenience to taxpayers and smaller management fees to the administration. The full computerization of these procedures allows also have real knowledge and complete car park stock, from the moment of registration until the time of slaughter, information that is not only essential to the pursuit of a good fiscal policy and the implementation of policies of diverse nature. In substance, and for reasons of their own, with the requirements of Community law and with national priorities in the field of environmental policy, energy and transport, a different discipline of different vehicle types, fixing the categories that have rooted in legislation until now in force. How a structuring and unifying element of these categories, dedicates the equivalence principle, leaving the way clear to the tax, as a whole, if subordinate to the idea that taxpayers should be subject to the extent that they cause to the environment and the road network, which was the raison d ' être of this tax figure. It is this principle that dictates the encumbrance of vehicles depending on their property until the time of slaughter, the common job of a specific tax basis, the review of the existing tax benefits and the allocation of a portion of the revenues to the municipalities to use. It is recognized, however, that the amendment of the operative event in the new road tax, which shall become the property of the vehicle, which, in itself, result in the short term, substantial difficulties 74 implementation of reform, as a result of the numerous faults and delays in settlement of records of acquisition or transmission of vehicles or cancels their registrations, in case of slaughter however occurred. That is why we have chosen to defer the full production of the effects of the code, with regard to the existing car park, for the beginning of 2008, committing the Government to advance, until then, with simplified and less costly mechanisms that allow a settlement of property records of vehicles and ensure the reliability necessary for the future settlement of the new tax. The new model is, however, immediately applicable in relation to passenger cars that are the subject of a first registration in national territory after the date of entry into force of the code. For these, adopting a tax base of mixed nature, which reproduces that which features now the vehicle tax, integrating at the same time the cylinder capacity and the level of carbon dioxide emission, anticipate the Community proposals on the matter. Infuses this tax, environmental logic that he was lacking, putting an end to a system of taxation that fed the in-service maintenance of end-of-life vehicles and the conversion to diesel automobile National Park, with serious damage to our environment and energy policy. The use of a tax base of mixed nature, combining a cylinder and carbon dioxide, it also has the virtue of making simple and transparent revenue sharing, which now has to be done between the central Government and the municipalities, whose financial interests are strictly preserved by this reform. As regards rolling stock Park so far subject to municipal tax on vehicles, and for serious reasons of practicality and rationality, that, as of January 2008, the tax base will diminish, by deletion of older vehicles, i.e. registered until 1980, but the tax increase, by observance of the principle of "user pays", for the older vehicles and pollutants , being held, current levels for the remaining vehicles, so as to ensure that all these support a lower taxation in relation to that will be imposed on vehicles registered from 1 July 2007, resulting in a slight increase of this recipe of the exclusive ownership of municipalities. Only regarding motorcycles and boats if they introduce one or another change, dictated by concerns a tax simplification that 75 had become overly complex over time. The vehicles so far subject to taxes and trucking continue to be taxed on the same basis on which are being not bringing This new reform. This is because this is an area of car taxation system subject to Community law, and therefore more limited margin of intervention of the national legislator. And that's just as well because these are vehicles with an environmental rationality already incorporates taxation, the tax base of the former based on characteristics of vehicles which better reflect the environmental and road wear produced by them and on their seniority. In this field, the Community legislator has advance the principle of equivalence, being unnecessary deep intervention in respect of this tax reform. The new tax shall be paid during the anniversary month of registration or vehicle registration and paid by the end of this month, allowing a more balanced revenue collection throughout the year and, consequently, better financial management. The tax assessment shall be carried out by the taxable person himself, via the Internet or in any tax office, being eliminated the obligation to affix a label to the vehicle. The thrust of it solutions and the cross between the various entities involved in registration or the registration of the vehicle and in the original settlement of vehicle taxes guarantee a computer more effective control in this area, with evident reduced costs and red tape, in addition to enabling a more accurate knowledge of the current Park, indispensable factor for sound management of fiscal policy.
