After the government had revised the vehicle import taxes and duties of Bhutan last year, it has left many prospective car buyers in a confusion.
With all the different tax slabs based on engine capacity, fuel type, country of import, etc. it was rather tedious to calculate the total cost price of a car including taxes and duties.
So I wrote this nifty Car Tax Calculator tool to calculate the precise taxes and total costs when importing a new car. As many buy cars with their vehicle quota allotment, this tool also provides a calculation with the quota taken into effect.
Have searched online for the official tax rates, but it doesn’t seem to be available. Thank you Ministry of Finance! Anyway, the calculations are based on rates found in online news clippings of Kuensel. If there’s any discrepancies, do let me know in the comments.
