The questions surrounding the delay in the 2017 road tax stickers have finally been clarified. Road users are now able to pay road tax for 2017, which will be valid from October 2017 to March 2018. The road tax for 2018 will then need to be repurchased again in March, due to the massive delay for 2017’s road tax.

The Ministry of Finance has authorized BCEL to officially start collecting road taxes and distrubiting stickers as of last Thursday.

Deputy Director General of the Tax Department, Mr Khampien Boupphavong stated, “ Tax collection has now commenced and tax stickers for display on windshields can be received at BCEL only.”

Those who bank with BCEL can pre-purchase their road tax stickers using the BCEL One App on their computers, smartphones or at an ATM. Those who don’t, can purchase the stickers directly from any BCEL branch.

Those who utilize the BCEL One app will receive a code after the sticker has been paid for, the user can note the confirmation number or snap it on their smartphone or computer, then swing by any BCEL with their yellow technical inspection book and vehicle documents. Bank clerks will then issue car owners their 2017 road tax stickers.

Payments can also be made directly to any BCEL branch.

According to the Tax Department, Laos has an estimated 1.8 million vehicles utilizing its roads, however only 30 percent have been reported to pay road tax every year. Authorities expect an estimated 30 billion kip coming from road tax for 2017, up from the reported 10 billion kip last year.
