The new system, thanks to which motorists can legally buy license plates with a “beautiful” combination of letters and numbers, will work in Russia from January 1, 2021. The corresponding draft resolution was prepared by the Ministry of Economy, Kommersant reports.
So, citizens will be able to reserve a room with the desired combination of letters and numbers. Specific combinations and increased duties for them will be prescribed in the Tax Code. In this case, the subjects will be allowed to independently enter a raising or lowering coefficient.
In addition, it implies the possibility of selling “beautiful” car numbers at auctions. Bidding will last 30 days. Moreover, a citizen will not be able to bid more than five times at a time. It is expected that 50% of the proceeds from the payment of state duty will go to the regional budget. Final bidding rules will be approved by the end of 2020.
Since January 1, 2020, the procedure for registering cars has changed in Russia. Now car dealerships can receive the status of “specialized organization” after passing the audit and fulfilling a number of requirements. After that, the dealer will be able to transfer documents to the traffic police, make numbers and give the whole set of documents with keys to the buyer. However, for customers this service is paid. The car owner will have to pay about 500 rubles for the numbers at the dealer. Such rates for the service are set by the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS).
