Motor vehicle duty calculator

The amount of duty payable depends on the type of vehicle you have and its dutiable value – the higher of the purchase price and the market value of the vehicle. Please note, this value includes the goods and services tax (GST) and the luxury car tax (LCT), if applicable.

To assist you in determining you motor vehicle performance rating the Australian Government’s Green Vehicle Guide sets out the CO2 emissions for different vehicles. Based on these emission levels, new vehicles receive a Vehicle Performance Rating of A, B, C or D.

This calculator should be used by you as a guide only.
