Hi everyone


I've tried searching but Google is rubbish when you use the word "tax", it gives me loads of corporation tax rubbish.


My sister sold her car last October (2013), to be more accurate it was a part ex. A few days after the sale, of which she has proof, the car tax was set to expire. She has now been received debt collection letters from the typical agency the DVLA use to pay the standard £80 fine for non payment of a vehicle licence.


She's been in touch with the DVLA by writing to object as she had sold the car. They're saying it doesn't matter because they weren't informed in time.


I'm trying to find out the definitive legal liability for car tax here. Is it down to who's name was on the V5 on the day of expiry of the car tax, or does the sale/part ex of the vehicle make the new owner automatically liable?


Any advice appreciated!

Its down to the registered keeper to inform dvla that they sold the car your sister should have sent the part in from the v5 I think for change of ownership thats why

She now has to pay the 80 quid as she didnt inform dvla

"they weren't informed in time."


Im assuming what they mean is they did not receive the V5 in time, not that she failed to inform dvla.

yes ok mistake made


pay the dvla mind

NOT any fleecing DCA!!



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
