Skoda Joins the No VAT Offer Assault

As was to be expected, manufacturers selling in the UK are scrambling to announce a new type of offer in the Kingdom, in light of next year's VAT reversal to 17.5 percent. After yesterday we told you about Nissan and its plan, its time to take a look in Skoda's backyard and see what they have in mind.

The Czech carmaker will continue its "No VAT" offer on all Fabia, Octavia and Roomster models, for orders placed up to 31 January 2010. In addition, Skoda Finance will keep offering 0% APR on several models, from November 2 to March 31, 2010.

The zero percent financing is available for Fabia 3 and Fabia Scout, Octavia 4x4, Scout, L&K and vRS; and Roomster Scout. It is only offered for contracts of up to a two-years and has a mandatory 50 percent customer deposit.

For the other vehicles, Skoda Finance offers 7.9% APR on its Solutions PCP, with deposits starting from one month’s payment in advance and payment periods of up to 42 months.

As the scrappage scheme continues, Skoda is still offering its customers a £3,500 incentive when trading in an old car for a new Octavia 1.6 TDI CR with 105 bhp with five-speed manual gearbox. The list price for this vehicle is set at £14,965.

"With a combination of the brand’s No VAT offer, great scrappage deals, and very competitive finance products, there has never been a better time to buy a Skoda," the carmaker says in a release.
