"Even if it is only 10% of the payments they end up making, it is still 10% on millions. I suspect it is a lot more."
Vehicle excise duty totals around £6bn this year, so all those part months most certainly will add up. If a quarter of all vehicles get traded each year, then that's £1.5bn of duty, if you can do a double take for only 5% of the annual total then that's a £75m stealth tax.
