Long delays in deliveries of new cars create a huge risk for vehicle fleet companies to lose their tax benefits.
Trembling prevails on leasing companies but also to their customers the new legislation which will take effect from 2023 and provides that 1 in 4 new cars where are obtained it should be electric or plug-in hybrid to maintain the tax breaks as it turns out in no case It is not feasible to applied due to delays found on deliveries of new vehicles!
In particular according to information of Newsauto.gr too many companies are expected to change the fleet of their vehicles inside 2023 and already have ordered thousands of new cars but which because of problems caused by shortages of semiconductors στα factories are expected to be delivered within 2023 but by no means before January 1, 2023 whenever you will apply the young law!
On the other hand, however new legislation which has voted and is expected to implemented from the beginning of 2023 provides that 1 in 4 new corporate cars it should be electric or plug-in hybrid as in different case imposed severe tax sanctions in company.
The new legislation clarifies that: “From 1.1.2023 at least the a quarter (1/4) of new private car companies classified, are purely electric vehicles or hybrid electric vehicles external charge of pollutants up to 50 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer (CO2 / km) “.
So from the moment you will cars who have ordered but they can not delivered within 2022 is the risk of imposing tax sanctions is visible in thousands of businesses with corporate vehicle fleets as vehicles with petrol or diesel engines will be delivered after advent of 2023 so the companies theoretically will outlaw…
After all time period from date that the law has been passed by 1st / 1/2023 is very small (10 months) and because of delays at deliveries of new cars or the companies will not manage to adapt or will cancel leases of new company vehicles.
Regarding tax sanctions things are extremely complex and hard both for Principles as well as for leasing companies but also them corporate vehicle users.
The Article 12 of the third chapter with a law entitled: “Measures to promote zero-emission vehicles” states that: “In case non-compliance of the company with the obligation of the present, the the cost of purchasing or renting a new corporate passenger car is not deducted from its gross revenue. according to par. 1 of article 7 of the Income Tax Code (Law 4172/2013, A ‘167) “.
That is, the company I will be punished very strictly and cost of leasing will not be deducted from expenses. According information of Newsauto.gr in the consultation table has fallen the removal of tax sanctions and replacing them with an administrative fine as it has been established that it will be extremely difficult to discover the tax authorities their offenders as well as his vehicles Leasing belong to time rental companies and not on companies που τα rent.
In commercial vehicles things are much worse however the implementation of the new legislation has been defined by January 1, 2025 and the law stipulates that: “From 1/1.2025within its administrative boundaries Attica Region and her Regional Unit of Thessalonikithe news Public Passengers (EDX) cars (Taxi) with a marketing authorization, as well as one third (1/3) of new vehicles classified for purposes lease and lease in third parties is zero emission vehicles».
The problem in commercial vehicles located in the fact that there are not many models available zero pollutants to be covered all the categories of vehicles leased and especially in their category light commercial LCV trucks (gross weight between 2.2t and 3.5t) or special vehicles with superstructures e.g. refrigerators, lifters etc.
THE addition of plug-in hybrid vehicles with emissions up to 50 gr. CO2 / km. will probably be one way so that covered All the companies.
THE new legislation which provides for acquisition of 25% electric or plug-in hybrid cars from companies from the early 2023 will cause one huge issue between companies leasing and customers as many businesses with rental fleets will not be able to comply with the measures resulting in leasing to be proven very expensive.
Also an extra huge problem that will be caused concerns calculation of leased vehicles as vehicles belong to time rental companies so theoretically the quota will not apply for Leasing companies which will are excluded from subway. However on companies with fleets but also rental companies who have mixed fleets no one has clear up how will calculated…
THE ban on the sale of new cars from 2030 and the changes launched many years earlier in company vehiclesστα Car rental and in Cab officially announced by Ministry of Environment and Energy were enough to cause a relative confusion in Buy and especially to professionals.
According information of Newsauto.gr the Leasing companies they literally tremble at the idea of just that groups with large corporate vehicle fleets will start contacting them to arrange at return of company vehicles with internal combustion engines with others respectively electric or plug-in models to be able to maintain tax benefits and at the same time to subsidized for acquisition their.
A mass return of used cars with internal combustion engines at this moment it would seem ideal with the lack of recorded in greek market of new ones and used cars. But if something like that happen later that will have normalize the situation in car factories and there will be a plethora of available cars something like that would be catastrophic for many leasing companies as vehicles where will returned would remain in unsolicited because of her implementation of the new measures. After all 2023 is very close and from the moment 25% of sales in corporate vehicles must relate to electric or plug-in hybrid models as a result automatically the value of used cars with internal combustion engines be very likely to reduced vertically creating huge deficits in the business leasing.
At the same time as we go towards it 2025 things will “They get worse” for vehicles with internal combustion engines as then will only electric taxis are classified while also the 1 in 3 rental vehicles it should be electric!
Automatically the value of used cars with internal combustion engines I will further reduced because of their plethora available cars that will exist.
A milestone year for vehicles with internal combustion engines will be the 2028 whenever the EU is expected to imposes the Carbon Tax which will greatly increase the cost of using gasoline, diesel, gas cars and LPG.
She just her year is expected to fall in selling prices of used vehicles with internal combustion engines…
Finally the 2030 whenever you will prohibit the sale of new cars and light trucks with internal combustion engines their fleet old cars in circulation will have been greatly reduced because of him high cost of use resulting in them slowly starting to move like antiques…
Final: Only in the socket 1 in 4 leasing cars!
On the islands instead of the “yards” thousands of used cars!
Leasing and rental companies are collapsing!
