Afskaffelse af reglerne om frikørsel af taxier og limousiner... fremover skal betales registreringsafgift ved videresalg...

...afskaffelsen af frikørselsordningen omvendt forventes at resultere i et umiddelbart merprovenu fra registreringsafgift af brugte biler...

Basically, you could resell a taxi as a private car and not have to pay a registration fee = frikørt.

Is there any term for this, or must one write "exempted from registration fees/levies [what have you] upon resale..."?

duty exemption on sale of taxies as used vehicles to private use


Explanation:
***duty exemption on sale of taxies as used vehicles to private use***, when used for a period of 3 years and 210.000 km. or 2 years and 250.000 km

11. Special regulation on taxes and dues
The taxi sector is subject to special regulation as regard taxes and dues. As a general rule the registration fee on motor vehicles amounts to 180 % of the dutiable value. The registration fee for taxies is limited to 20 % of the dutiable value. ***Vehicles used as taxies can be sold to private use exempt for duty, when used for a period of 3 years and 210.000 km. or 2 years and 250.000 km.*** Moreover the taxi sector has a VAT exemption.

***Special regulations in Denmark allow taxi companies to purchase luxury cars at a registration fee of 20%, and additional regulations make it possible for the taxi companies to sell the cars at full registration fee after two years and 250,000 km on the road***. For example, a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which would cost DKK 750,000 with the (excessive) Danish standard registration fee of 180 %, would thus cost in the region of DKK 340,000 in acquisition for the Taxi Company.

According to the driver, his employer would ask DKK 300,000 - 350,000 for the vehicle after two years and 250,000 km. - a quick look at Bilbasen.dk confirms this assessment.
This opening motivates Danish Taxi Companies to drive "empty miles.", as the taxi should preferably reach the magic 250,000 km. within the two years. - and we're not exactly talking about environmentally friendly cars ;)
In 2010 there were over 6,000 taxis in Denmark - let's assume that this number is the same today. Expecting that all companies utilizes the two year opening, this means that there are purchased approx. 3,000 taxi vehicles each year for the favorable registration fee of 20%.

Asker: Well, thanks for the helpful links, but your proposal is just as unwieldy as what I initially wrote in my question.
