PostSubject: Bulgaria Road Tax Vignette   Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:27 pm

Looks like its going to cost even more to Tax your car next year

The price of "
vignettes"
(road tax) in Bulgaria is set to increase next year, announced Rosen Plevneliev, Minister of Regional Development.

The price of vignettes has not changed for the past two years. The most popular are annual vignettes, which cost BGN 67. In 2008, the revenues collected totaled BGN 217 M. In January this year BGN 103 M were collected, according to the Road Agency.

In October 2009, the recently sacked director of the Road Agency, Yanko Yankov, had announced that the price of stickers would not be increased in 2010.

The National Road Infrastructure Agency stated that there is still no decision on how much new stickers will cost, nor whether this hike will apply to all categories of vignette.

Three ministries those of Regional Development, Transport and Finance are meeting Monday night to discuss the matter.

Plevneliev told the Bulgarian National Television there were several variants to be discussed. The final option will be announced Wednesday, when the budget is to be put before the Council of Ministers

The price increase should be applied only to one-year vignettes, in the opinion of the Minister of Regional Development.

The Ministry of Transport prefers not to offer an opinion, because they have not yet received the analysis of the Road Agency, said Minister Alexander Tsvetkov.

The Ministry of Finance commented that they are still analysing whether all types of vignettes are to go up and by how much, or whether the rise should be limited to certain categories only.

Currently, a tender is open for the selection of vignette distributors;
the project is worth BGN 40 M, over a period of 4 years, and the deadline for presentation of offers is November 2.

At the moment, the stickers are being distributed only by DZI Trans and Bulgarian Posts. The intention of the tender is to provide for more distributors of the vignettes, said Minister Plevneliev.

I've been told about some of the roads in Bulgaria and some of the pot holes or should I say craters but I would think that this increase is for the government coffers

Bulgaria Road Tax Vignette Cost to Remain The Same in 2010

Here's the latest from novonite today

The price of the vignette (road tax) will not increase in 2010, the Bulgarian Ministers of Finance and Regional Development have decided Tuesday, according to Darik Radio.

The current cost of an annual vignette for a car is BGN 67, a price unchanged since 2007. An eventual rise in the cost of vignettes was discussed as a way to cover deficits in the budgets of the Regional Ministry and the Roads Agency, by providing funding for road maintenance and construction.

Next year, however, the ecological tax on trucks that are older than Standard Euro 3 heavy-duty truck and bus engines built before 2000 will go up by 30%. It is likely that lower ecological taxes will apply to all other vehicle categories. These changes are being made not so much as a result of European Union requirements, but because of the State budget.

It is expected that further, official information on the decision of the two Ministers emerge Wednesday, when the final parameters of the 2010 State Budget become clear.

[size=75:q9ys233n]Saurce Sofia echo 12/11/09

Road tax vignettes' validity extended to 13 months


Proposed amendments to the Ordinance for Collecting Fees for Road Infrastructure would extend the validity of road tax vignettes to 13 months, from January 1 to January 31 2010, a Government media statement said on November 11 2009.

The amendments were proposed in order to simplify the vignette system and waive the inconvenience of car owners having to purchase new vignettes over the Christmas and New Year's holidays, the media statement said.

Vignettes are sold through the central and regional offices of the Road Infrastructure Agency (RIA), through specialised units of the Customs Agency at border crossings or through distributors, including many petrol stations.



Does this mean a free month [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[size=75:2eqza7ds]Dnevnik 3 January 2010
Translation on this one isn't quite right but I think you will get the gist of it

By the end of January Traffic fines will not be in the absence of short vignettes

At the time not yet a contract between the API and the selected artist in the competition for distribution of vignette stickers because of a complaint by another contestant. Therefore, the supervisory authorities of Traffic Road Police fined not citizens who were unable to buy short vignette stickers to January 31, 2010

Drivers of cars and trucks that enter the territory of Bulgaria at the beginning of the year will be able to buy a vignette stickers for 2010 from all checkpoints in the country.

At this stage vignettes can be mobilized in the regional travel offices and the headquarters of the Agency Road Infrastructure (API) on Macedonia Square 3 in Sofia. Relief to the citizens of 2 and 3 January there will be staff on duty in the regional travel offices and the building of the API with time from 9.00 to 17.30

Yearly vignettes for 2009 will be valid until January 31, 2010 weekly and monthly vignette stickers purchased at the end of December 2009 will be in force until the relevant date of January 2010

This is a little clearer

Vignettes from last year will be valid until the end of January 2010, the National Road Infrastructure Agency reminds. The road police will not fine drivers with no stickers this month. The reason for the unexpected time bonus is the fact, that a contract has not yet been concluded with the new vignettes distributor the EIBank VIP Security consortium, chosen this December, the 24 Chasa informs.

[size=75:2jalohe7]Focus news 6 January 2010

The drama with vignette stickers is over

The consortium between EIBank and VIP Security, registered under the name Vignette Stickers Distribution is prepared to begin offering vignette stickers at gas stations starting next week, if the contract for vignettes distribution is signed by January 10. The Lukoil Roads Holding consortium has not filed a second complaint at the Commission on Protection of Competition until the expiration of the respective term, which would mean that the choice of Vignette Stickers Distribution as the next distributor is final.
Annual vignette stickers issued last year will be valid until the end of January, the National Road Infrastructure Agency (NRIA) reminds.
Vignettes will be offered for sale at EIBank's branch office network, consisting of over 220 offices all around the country. Negotiations will be led with five companies with operating gas station networks in Bulgaria Lukoil, Petrol, OMV, Shell and Eco Elda. Lukoil Bulgaria and state-owned Bulgarian Posts stated they have no interest in the.

[size=75:12dgy76i]Standart news 16 January 2010

ATMs Sell Vignettes

Distributors to be sanctioned if vignettes are not available

"
Vignette stickers will be sold through ATMs. They will be sold not only at petrol stations and post offices but in supermarkets, too,"
stated Bulgaria's Minister of Regional Development, Rossen Plevneliev, in an interview for The Standart.
Presently, vignettes for 2010 are sold only in road police departments and as of January 18, they will be available in trade centers, too. "
After the end of the initial campaign, we shall start talks with all card operators. The idea is that together with BORIKA bank organization for card payments and all banks in Bulgaria we make a joint software to allow the sale of vignettes through ATMs,"
VIP Security company which was elected to distribute the vignettes explained.
VIP Security in a consortium with Economic and Investment Bank won the tender for the distribution of the vignette stickers. The sales of the vignettes will be registered daily in the Road Agency.
"
We shall sanction distributors in case vignettes are not available,"
Minister Plevneliev added.
