Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for motorcycles
will be frozen at current levels in the new budget.
VED rates on cars and vans will be raised.
MAG continues with its persistent lobbying and co-operation
with the motorcycle community and Government on the
issues of restoring the 25 year rolling VED `classic'
exemption, VAT exemptions on protective motorcycle clothing,
replacement visors (OE visors are already free of VAT
when sold with a new helmet), and motorcycle training
Most recently, MAG has lobbied the Treasury and the
Inland Revenue regarding the increase to the non-taxable
allowance for riders using motorcycles and scooters
