110. To ask the Minister for Finance further to Parliamentary Question No. 1225 of 9 September 2021, if he will address further matters regarding VRT (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [50005/21]

As noted in my response to the Deputy on 9thSeptember in PQ 42112/21, the Disabled Drivers & Disabled Passengers Scheme provides relief from VRT and VAT on the purchase and use of an adapted car, as well as an exemption from motor tax and an annual fuel grant. Details of these reliefs and the grant in respect of fuel usage are available on the Revenue website. The relief from Value Added Tax and Vehicle Registration Tax are generous in nature amounting to up to €10,000, €16,000 or €22,000.

Again, the amount of the remission or repayment of VAT and VRT is decided on the basis of the value and nature of the adaptions made to the vehicle. Accordingly, I have no plans to amend the reliefs at this time.
