    Public consultation started today on the proposed drop in ACC levy rates.

    ACC is proposing a 15 per cent cut in the earners’ levy paid by everyone in the work force, a 17 per cent drop in the average work levy paid by employers and self-employed people, and a 15 per cent drop in the average motor vehicle levy paid by vehicle owners.

    The corporation is not proposing changes to average motorcycle, petrol or motorcycle safety levies.

    I strongly advise everyone has there say about this discrimination against motorcyclists via the ACC website.

    Public consultation on the proposed levy rates would be open until October 15 and New Zealanders could have their say on proposed changes online at the ACC website.

    Registration costs for cars and light vehicles are dropping again come July 1st 2016, however motorcycles continue to get stiffed.

    You can now look up almost any vehicle by their rego plate and see what the registration fee will be on the Rightcar website at http://rightcar.govt.nz/rego/acc-new

    You can read about it on stuff.co.nz but the basics are below.

    The average motor vehicle levy will fall from about $195 to around $130 per vehicle from July 1, it has been confirmed.

    ACC Minister Nikki Kaye today confirmed the new ACC annual licence levies that owners of light vehicles – cars, vans, utes and SUVs – will pay from July.

    The levy is part of the “rego” vehicle licensing fee.

    Ms Kaye said the average levy, which includes the licence levy and petrol levy, would fall by 33 per cent.

    “It will save New Zealanders $218 million, and follows $438 million of cuts to motor vehicle levies last year,” Ms Kaye said.

    “This means the average motor vehicle levy has fallen from $330 to $130 since 2014.”
