Cabinet's press release

MBIE's document library: Cabinet Minute of Decision: 2019/20 and 2020/21 ACC Levies

Our original proposal

ACC Fleet Saver is a programme for businesses that own five or more goods vehicles weighing more than 3,500kgs each. Its purpose is to help reduce the high incidence and cost of accidents of those vehicles.

If those businesses can show effective safety management practices they're eligible to receive a discount on their ACC Motor Vehicle levy. The more those safety systems improve, the more your business can save. 

Those in the programme can reduce their Motor Vehicle levies by:

  • 10% (Bronze)
  • 25% (Silver)
  • 40% (Gold).

We’re not proposing any changes to the ACC Fleet Saver discount levels

From 1 July 2019, it's proposed to keep the discount levels for the ACC Fleet Saver Programme the same. The levels are Bronze at 10%, Silver at 25% and Gold at 40% of the Motor Vehicle levy.

The amount you pay may still change

While we're proposing to keep the discount levels the same, the actual amount you pay may go up or down depending on what is decided on the Motor Vehicle levy rate. 

In the table below you’ll see the current ACC levy portion of the vehicle licensing fee and our proposed rates for the 2019-21 levy period (non-petrol driven).

Goods vehicles weighing more than 3,500 kgs Current 2018-2019 levy Proposed 2020-2021 levy $ increase % increase
Heavy (Not in ACC Fleet Saver) $230.66 $270.81 $40.15 17.4%
Heavy (ACC Fleet Saver Bronze) $207.60 $243.73 $36.14 17.4%
Heavy (ACC Fleet Saver Silver) $173.00 $203.11 $30.11 17.4%
Heavy (ACC Fleet Saver Gold) $138.40 $162.49 $24.09 17.4%

Review of the ACC Fleet Saver programme

During the 2019-21 levy period, we’ll be reviewing the ACC Fleet Saver programme. This is to check that it’s still fit for purpose by reducing the incidence and costs of accidents for large good vehicles.
