ECJ censures Finnish laws

THE European Court of Justice (ECJ) has censured Finland’s road tax laws for preventing Finnish resident frontier workers, with a job in another European Union (EU) member state, from bringing their car home from their workplace.

The ECJ has declared Finland ‘in breach of its EU treaty obligations on the freedom of movement of workers’ by insisting Finland residents obtain Finnish car tax for their vehicles, even those generally used for work abroad. Finland must now liberalise its system or potentially face large fines.
