Annual Road Fund Tax Refunds

The 'grape vine' tells me that those who have metriculated cars here (i.e. imported them) can now reclaim a large proportion of the annual road fund tax charged on them.  Can anyone shed any light on this?

If the vehicle was previously registered in another EU member state, yes, but you can only claim back 4 years. The amount you can claim back will depend on what year the vehicle was first registered in that other member state.
