New homologation procedure

As of September 2018, all new passenger cars have to undergo the new WLTP test. WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure. This new, stricter test measures a car's fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and other properties. WLTP testing offers a more realistic picture of the actual emissions of passenger cars than the previous NEDC testing method.
Until the end of 2020, the WLTP figures had to be converted to their NEDC equivalents in order to compare different cars. From 2021, this is no longer an obligation, but car manufacturers may still enter both emission levels on the certificate of conformity (COC). Read our white paper for more detailed information on WLTP.


Car taxes in 2021

The deductibility of car expenses changed starting on 1 January 2020. Since then, tax deductibility is based on a formula that takes into account both the CO2 emissions and the car's type of combustion engine. The maximum deductibility has also been reduced to 100%.
Special rules now also apply to plug-in hybrid cars purchased after 1 January 2018. If they do not meet certain conditions, they will be taxed more. Find out more here or watch the webinar on car taxation again.


Limitation of CO2 reference values from 2022 onwards

From 2022 onwards, the CO2 reference values for calculating the benefit in kind, will be fixed at the 2020 level and cannot increase.
In concrete terms, this means that if the average CO2 values of sold cars increase, the CO2 reference values will not increase accordingly, but the reference values of 2020 will be taken into account instead.
In this way, a decrease of the benefit in kind as in 2019 and 2020 will no longer be possible.
