Right, Ash's MK5 is off to the garage tomorrow in exchange for her Colt. Got a bit of an issue with the garage regarding tax.
She is having to pay for 6 months tax on the Colt which we can accept. I told her for that then we will take the tax out of the Astra and claim the 4 months left on it which I worked out to be £40-£50. When she told the garage that they told her they wanted the tax left on the Astra ... so I assume they can claim it back for themselves!
Now the question is, are we within our rights to remove the tax from the Astra ourselves and claim the refund on it, or do we have to leave it in there?
I told her, if they were paying for the tax on the Colt they can keep the Astra tax as part payment towards it, but seeing as we are paying for the tax on the Colt, I don't see why they should be keeping her old tax to claim that back too!
