Poland's finance ministry has proposed replacing an existing registration tax on new and imported second-hand road vehicles with a system based on emissions and engine capacity. The move responds to EU concerns that the current Polish tax acts as a barrier to imports.

For the newest, cleanest cars the rate will be just a quarter of this. The plan has the support of the Polish car importers' association. See draft law.
