Last Updated on Thursday, 19 November 2015, 19:48 by GxMediaThe Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is expected to commence the new motor vehicle registration series “VV” shortly, that licensing and tax agency said Thursday in a statement.
The Commissioner General of the GRA, Mr. Khurshid Sattaur, in his capacity as Chief Licensing Officer has given his approval for the new series to be introduced.
The current “TT” series was introduced on November 13, 2014, following the “SS” registration series which was introduced on November 25, 2013.
The general public is further advised that the new “VV” registration series will affect privately registered vehicles, buses, trailers and goods vehicles (inclusive of vans and lorries).
A Motor Vehicle Registration Series elapses after nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine (9999) vehicles have been registered by the Licence Revenue Office (LRO) of the GRA, and the introduction of this new series is another indication that persons continue to be afforded their own vehicle.
Motor Vehicle owners are reminded that the Motor Vehicle Licence is valid until the registration anniversary. Hence, such licence must be renewed every year on or before the anniversary of the vehicle’s registration. Newly registered vehicles or vehicles that underwent changes, that is, change of colour or engine number, must be physically examined by the LRO. All registrations and change of motor vehicle registrations are facilitated at GRA’s Headquarters, 200-201 Camp Street, South Cummingsburg, while vehicles are examined at the GRA’s former Smyth Street Office and all Regional Integrated Offices.
Persons who require additional information can contact the Tax Advisory Services Section on 227-6060 extension 1201-1204 or the Motor Vehicle Registration Section on 227-6060 extension 1026.
