Motor Insurance Tax is a charge on mandatory liability insurance for motor vehicles under 7,500 kilos in weight. The tax is calculated on the basis of the daily rate, multiplied by the number of days the vehicle is insured. The tax is charged to the insured at the time of paying for the insurance of the vehicle and administered to the tax authorities by the insurer.
