Description:

In January 2005, the Belgian government offered a tax reduction for money spent on the purchase of a new passenger or light-duty vehicle emitting a maximum of 115 gCO2/km. The reduction was up to 15% of the vehicle price (max. 4000 EUR) for cars with CO2 emissions lower than 105 g / km, and up to 3% of the vehicle price (max. 750 EUR) for cars with CO2 emissions between 105 and 115 g / km. Auto dealers were required to provide an attestation to the vehicle buyer, who could then apply for a tax reduction. In July 2007, the scheme was replaced by a direct reduction off the vehicle purchase price, reimbursed directly to the auto dealer.

This record is superseded by:Incentives for the purchase of low emission vehicles
