Rego reduction will benefit consumers and caravan industry
The NSW Government recently announced significant cuts to caravan and camper trailer registration costs – taking effect from 1 November 2018.
CCIA NSW has long been advocating to cut registration fees to bring costs in NSW more in line with other states, and the recent announcement shows that the Government has listened and taken action.
Towed caravans and purpose-built camper trailers will be eligible for the 40 per cent reduction in motor vehicle tax. Registration costs in NSW include an annual fee of $65 plus the motor vehicle tax which is based on the tare weight of the caravan or camper trailer.
The reduction in motor vehicle tax will apply to privately registered caravans and purpose-built camper trailers weighing up to 4.5 tonnes, and will deliver savings of up to $471.
Caravan and camping holidays are an important part of the tourism economy in NSW and are especially important in regional communities across the State.
