According to Article 5 of Decree 140/2016/ND-CP and Point a, Clause 2, Article 1 of Decree 20/2019/ND-CP, the LPTB of used cars will be calculated according to a separate formula, specifically as follows:

Registration fee = Registration fee calculation price x 2%.

In which, to calculate the amount of registration fee payable, the customer must know the price to calculate the registration fee with the buyer of a used car, and must calculate the percentage of the remaining quality of the car.

To calculate the residual value of a used car, the buyer will apply the following formula:

Registration fee calculation price (residual value) = Value of new property x % of remaining quality.

The percentage (%) of the remaining quality of the old car is determined by year as follows:

Used Time

Residual value compared to new car

Less than 1 year


From 1-3 years


From 3-6 years


From 6-10 years


Over 10 years


Note, for used cars, the percentage of used car quality is calculated from the year of manufacture to the year of declaration of the registration fee.

For example: A new Toyota Vios in April 2022, the first registration fee calculation price is 600 million VND, by December 2022, the car is resold, the registration fee is calculated as follows:

Registration fee = 2% x (600 million VND x 90%) = 10.8 million VND.

Thus, the car will not be eligible for registration fee incentives and will apply the registration fee calculation method depending on the remaining value of the car at the time of transfer.
