Vehicle tax refundsBack

VSAGuidance on the vehicle tax refund process following the abolition of the tax disc.

DVLA continue to receive requests for V14 forms (Application for a refund of vehicle tax or return of a nil value disc) which was made obsolete on 1 October as a result of abolition of the tax disc. It should no longer be used to apply for a refund of vehicle tax.

Since 1 October 2014, customers no longer need to make a separate application for a refund of vehicle tax. A refund is automatically issued when notification is received from the person named on DVLA’s vehicle register that a vehicle has been:

• sold or transferred
• scrapped at an Authorised Treatment Facility
• exported
• removed from the road and a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) made
• changed to an exempt duty tax class

Rejection of V14 forms

Any further V14 applications received will be rejected and returned to the applicant.

Dates of acquisition and/or disposal

Please ensure that the dates of acquisition and/or disposal provided on V5Cs, V5C/2 and V5C/3 are current and accurate as incorrect information could affect the amount of refund calculated.

If taxing on behalf of a new keeper, the V5C/2 should be used at the point a sale is agreed and details of the new keeper completed on the document. The V5C/2 should be passed to the new keeper.
