The Danish Motor Agency discovers a fraud of 60 million kroner

Following a number of media revelations of fraud with the registration tax on new motorcycles in Denmark, the Motorstyrelsen has taken a closer look at the matter.

Last year, DR's consumer program 'Kontant' and Dagbladet Borsen were able to reveal that the registration tax on new motorbikes in the country was heavily cheated.

And now the Motor Authority has looked into the matter. A number of initiatives have come out of this, which will affect dealers and importers of motorcycles.

The agency states this in a press release .

One of the absolutely central tools that the Motor Authority is now implementing is a monthly monitoring of the so-called self-declarants. Something the authorities call risk assessment.

– Fortunately, the vast majority of motorcycle importers and dealers are willing to follow the rules.

– However, there have been challenges in some places. With the new initiatives, we have an even greater focus on everyone paying the taxes they have to – no more, no less, says Jorgen Rasmussen, board director of the Motor Authority.

Based on the overall tightening, the Motor Authority has concluded that the industry has paid more than DKK 60 million too little to the state treasury. And that in pure registration fees.

The motorcycle dealers and importers have been able to get away with this by, among other things, keeping the price of the motorcycles artificially low, but in return charging extra for additional equipment.

It is the fine that the Motor Agency with the controls now hopes to have come to life in the industry. However, MC people are not the only ones who cheat.

The mechanics also do this when drivers need help. It can be for something as simple as a regular service. At least that's what a well-known mechanic thinks. Read more about it here .
