Scrappage Scheme Extended to June 2011

The Car Scrappage scheme was introduced in 2010 – and enabled people to claim a refund of VRT when buying a new car and scrapping an old one . See Full details of Scrappage Scheme here .
In Budget 2011 – it was announced that the car scrappage scheme is being extended to 30 June 2011.
But – the maximum relief will be reduced from €1,500 to €1,250.
The good news is that the extended scrappage scheme is now available to a spouse or civil partner.
