Vehicle Registration Duty and Dutiable Value
Duty is payable upon application to register a vehicle unless exempt. Duty on tractor-based mobile machinery is charged at a flat rate of
$25.00. Duty for other vehicles is calculated at a variable percentage rate of the Dutiable Value of the vehicle as determined by the vehicles
fuel type or number of engine cylinders/rotors. These rates are: Electric/Hybrid vehicles with any number of cylinders/rotors = 2% ($2.00
per $100 or part thereof); up to 4 cylinders/2 rotors (incl. steam) = 3% ($3.00 per $100 or part thereof); 5 or 6 cylinders or 3 rotors = 3.5%
($3.50 per $100 or part thereof); 7 or more cylinders = 4% ($4.00 per $100 or part thereof).
The Dutiable Value of a vehicle not previously registered in Australia is the total of the vehicles list price and the price of all items of optional
equipment not included in the list price. The list price is the highest recommended retail price of the manufacturer, importer or principal
Brisbane distributor of the vehicle.
The Dutiable Value of a vehicle that has previously been registered in Queensland or another State or for which there is no list price,
is the greater of the following:
- total amount payable by the purchaser including any deposit, trade-in allowance and the price of all optional equipment; or
- market value of the vehicle (The market value of the vehicle is the amount for which the vehicle might be sold, free of
encumbrances on the open market).
