Are you looking for buying vehicles such as cars, bikes, scooters, or trucks? Then you must read this post to know the vehicle tax policy of Nepal. It is well known there are no manufacturers of vehicles in Nepal. So, it is imported from neighboring countries, therefore the car price is extremely high.

The import tax for cars, motorcycles, trucks, and scooters is subject to 288% which obviously seems utmost to westerners. So, the high price results in high tax payments for vehicles despite it cannot be denied that it is one of the main sources of government revenue.

Tax payment is the responsibility and sole duty of all the citizens. For riding vehicles on the road the citizens need to pay vehicle tax to the government. The amount of tax varies between vehicles depending upon their ownership, and size.

According to Nepal Budget 2079-80, Nepal Government has updated some changes to the vehicle tax as per the budget speech. The amendment is chiefly for High CC Bikes, Cars, and Jeeps.
