The Czech Republic Premier Mirek Topolanek (Civic Democrats, ODS) recently informed Mlada fronta Dnes daily that no car scrapping subsidy is planned to introduce during this year in the country. According to him Czech car makers has no such necessity to provide such bonuses at the moment, although such a plan has already been arranged.

"The car scrapping scheme has been prepared, we agree with it but our car makers do not need the car scrapping bonus. They are not able to satisfy demand triggered by its launch in Germany, France and Slovakia nowadays," Mr. Topolanek said. But this scheme could be introduced at any moment in the future if such a need arises.

The car scrapping bonuses are already introduced in some neighbour countries. Thus, in Slovakia the government is ready to pay up to EUR 1,500 to a person who buys a new car if the seller agrees to cut the price by at least EUR 500. In case the seller is not ready to cooperate this way, the state subsidy is EUR 1,000. The subsidy is valid if a car priced up to EUR 25,000 including VAT is bought.

Other countries where car scrapping has been already introduced are Germany, France, Cyprus, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania and Spain. Austria is going to join this club in the nearest future.
