Petition offered to Lower House

ER Classics Desktop 2022

CompressDSC04919It was a special day today. In the fight against the tightening of the rules concerning the MRB exemption for vintage cars, a petition was just handed over to the Finance Committee of the Lower House under the watchful eye of Pownews.

Wouter van Embden offered the petition file on behalf of with just about 27.000 statements of support from the old-timer enthusiasts. Of course we are all looking forward to the Pownews broadcast tonight, but here are a few pictures that nicely reflect the good atmosphere.

Handing over the petition is the next step in the effort to maintain the Van Vliet Amendment. The lengthy file reveals the economic consequences and legal omissions. It also became clear that the State Secretary of Finance informed the House this spring with incorrect figures. This resulted in incorrect calculations. This again resulted in the agreement that was concluded with the 'alliance' earlier this year.

  1. Quite a one-sided response, indeed. But that doesn't interest them either. What do they care that owners end up with a gigantic noose, while their car (s) are also plummeting in value due to this (lack of) policy. Oh well, why should Pownews have to be on the public broadcaster when they already had enough stage with the internet?

  2. that bovag and anyway the ANWB are looking for a recovery of the market for new cars, in my opinion that is the only reason they like the abolition of the tax exemption for old-timers: / Why blinkers on

  3. On the other hand, it is of course unfortunate that BOVAG, KNAC and RAI, but also the ANWB and FEHAC cannot support these ideas. Concord makes power. Moreover, the room is simply misinformed, so there is no reason to change the tax exemption anymore.

  4. Compliments for the well-founded reports and objective figures. Hopefully the introduction of the MRB for vintage cars / classics will be swept off the table. A well thought out lobby by Wouter van Emden et al. Where BOVAG, KNAC and RAI have left it ... Until today. Chance of success increases!
