Are you an entrepreneur? And are you going to buy a company van that runs on petrol, diesel, or LPG? From 1 January 2025 you will have to pay private vehicle and motorcycle tax (bpm). You can no longer make use of the exemption from bpm for company vans (the entrepreneurs scheme).
The government wants to end the entrepreneurs scheme (ondernemersvrijstelling) for company vans to stimulate the purchase of zero emission vehicles or very fuel-efficient vans.
The way the bpm rate is calculated for company vans will also change. At the moment, the net catalogue price determines the bpm rate. That will change: the amount of CO2 emissions (energy efficiency) will determine the bpm rate for your company van.
If you meet the conditions of the entrepreneurs scheme, you can still use it through 31 December 2024.

The change in law is expected to enter into effect on 1 January 2025.
