Yellow plates: zero tolerance!
The abolition of the VAT certificate for the use by a Belgian resident of a vehicle registered in Luxembourg does not mean the end of all the obligations, on the contrary a recrudescence of the controls is foreseen.
If you are a Belgian resident and you work for a Luxembourg company that puts a vehicle at your disposal as part of your duties, you must be able to present in case of infringement, immediate verbalization and failing to pay on the spot the amount :
How much is the fine?
The driver at fault will pay amounts relating to tax traffic and circulation of the vehicle plus a fine of twice the amount of the evaded part of the tax, with a maximum of € 1,250
Which documents must be submitted?
A copy of the employment contract or mission order (document proving a subordination link)
A document prepared by the owner of the car attesting that he has made the vehicle available
In the case of leasing, certain documents must be on board the vehicle:
the lease certificate,
- the work contract
- the certificate of provision of the vehicle by the employer
LeasePlan's tip: to have a "composition of the household on board" because otherwise, the spouse will be verbalized if this one uses the leasing vehicle.
