BIFA issues HGV levy guidance

[ February 14, 2014   //   ]

The British International Freight Association (BIFA) is offering guidance to its members on the forthcoming HGV levy, which will be levied on all lorries weighing 12 tonnes or more to use the UK road network from April 1, 2014. UK registered vehicles will pay the levy alongside their vehicle excise duty but those registered outside the UK will need to pay it before entering the UK.

Foreign truck operators or drivers need to purchase the levy before arriving in this country, through the Internet, telephone or terminals.
