The Greek equivalent of UK Car Tax is an annual payment that runs from January 1st until December 31st.
So if you buy a car late in the year, say October you still have to pay for a full year and renew your road tax again in December.
The amount you pay for your Car Tax on Crete increases with the size of your car engine but compares very favourably to the amount of Road Tax payable in the UK, for example.
In years gone by, you received a sticker to plaster on your windscreen. Some proud drivers displayed several years of stickers, often obscuring their view of the road!
Annual car tax renewal is now automated and your Crete home address for your Greek Tax number is where the annual car tax renewal letter is normally sent. Payment can then be made at your bank. If the tax office don't know your address, but they know your accountant's address, they may send it there.
If you do not receive your renewal letter, as happened to us, you will need to go to your local tax office.
If paying cash, go early in December to avoid queuing as everyone will be rushing to renew before the end of the month. If you fail to renew before December 31st you will be liable for a penalty for late payment – double your Road Tax bill!
First queue at the counter that issues bills, brandishing your registration document. Next you'll need to go to another window with your bill, to pay the cashier.
