Car Insurance Tax Being Felt Across The Nation

Drivers feeling full effect of IPT on impounded car insurance

IPT on impounded car insurance

Impounded car insurance policy holders are feeling the effect of the increased IPT (insurance premium tax) as more policies are coming up for renewal. In a bid to raise more money the government introduced a higher IPT in November of 9.5% (up from 6% a whopping 58% increase in tax on impounded car insurance) a further increase of 0.5% was introduced in this year’s budget taking the tax on impounded car insurance up to a massive 10% and it doesn’t stop there as pre-budget talk suggested there were talks of a rate of 12.5% being introduced this could well be put off till later in the year or next year’s budget. Now, 9 months after the initial increase in impounded car insurance tax the majority of drivers that were on an annual impounded car insurance policy have received their renewal documents and are facing the increased premiums. Drivers must now look at making these savings elsewhere to bring the costs of motoring down.

  2. Accelerate slowly, putting less pressure on the gas pedal will naturally save you fuel.
  3. Be more observant and think ahead when driving, thinking ahead will mean you will be doing less last minute braking and can conserve more momentum.
  4. Try and hover at around 58mph on the motorway, travelling at this speed has been shown to be the most fuel efficient.
