Binding ruling on vehicle registration tax

If you want to know the exact registration tax if, for example, you import, export, convert a van to a car or need a total weight reduction of a vehicle, you can apply to the Danish Motor Vehicle Agency (Motorstyrelsen) for a binding ruling.

  • A fee of DKK 400 is charged for a binding ruling.
  • Payment should be made via online banking.
  • A copy of the vehicle registration certificate or the COC document must accompany the application. 
  • If you are applying as a an agent representing a party, you must send a declaration of consent together with the application.
  • Our response time may be up to three months.
  • Binding rulings on vehicle registration tax are valid for three months*

* However, a binding ruling is no longer valid if changes to acts or executive order which will have an impact on the ruling are made within these three months.
