Amendments to the Electric Vehicles Deduction Rules

A LN was published to amend the Electric Vehicles Deduction Rules, applicable vis-à-vis expenditure incurred with effect from 01/01/2016 on electric vehicles.

The tax deduction is calculated at the rate of 150% of the cost incurred in the case of an electric vehicle or 125% of the cost incurred in the case of a hybrid vehicle. “Electric vehicle” is defined as a vehicle that derives its motive power exclusively from an electric motor, whilst "hybrid vehicle" is defined as a vehicle having at least two different energy converters and two different energy storage systems for  the purpose of vehicle propulsion.

The total deduction claimed under these rules shall not exceed €40,000 in the case of an electric vehicle and € 30,000 in the case of a hybrid vehicle.
