The Tax Information and Impact Note published on 10 December 2013 estimated that the abolition of the tax disc would have no Exchequer revenue impact. We expect the revenue impact of the introduction of automatic refunds and the non-transferability of the vehicle licence to cancel each other out.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The administrative cost savings from the abolition of the tax disc are estimated to be £13.8m per year as set out in the Impact Assessment published by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on 8 September 2014.
