There is no charge for implementing a common expiry date however a TAC administration fee is applied to the pro rata registration renewal notice.

When the expiration of the vehicle current registration period has expired, you will be sent a renewal notice for the period from the expiration of the current period, to the new common expiry date.

If the common expiry date chosen is for a period of 70 days or less, next year's full TAC charge and full registration fee must be collected in advance, in addition to the balance of fees to change the registration to the new common expiry date.
