SINGAPORE: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on Friday (Jan 20) that it would be adjusting the method for computing Certificate of Entitlement (COE) quota available for bidding.

The adjustment - six months after a similar move last year - is to "further reduce the quarter-on-quarter volatility of COE supply", said LTA.

 

With effect from Feb 1, the number of COEs available for bidding in each quarter will be the rolling average of the number of vehicles deregistered over the previous four quarters, instead of two.

For example, the number of COEs for the upcoming quarter of February to April will be 25 per cent of the number of vehicles deregistered from January 2022 to December 2022.

The number of COEs for the next quarter - May to July - will be 25 per cent of the number of vehicles deregistered from April 2022 to March 2023.

The start of each new COE quota bidding period will continue to be one month after the close of each calendar quarter.

COE QUOTA FOR FEBRUARY TO APRIL

The COE quota for February to April will be 9,437. This is a 3.4 per cent increase from the 9,128 COEs in the previous quarter.

 

Bidding under the upcoming quota will start on Feb 6, said LTA .

Under the previous method, the quota for the February to April period would have been a lower figure of 8,695, a difference of 7.9 per cent or 742 COEs.

The next quota announcement for the bidding period of May to July will be made in April.

After the adjustment in calculation method last year, experts told CNA that COE price peaks would not be as high as they would be under the current counting method. 

However, COE price troughs will also not be as low as they would have been.

Constant adjustment is good especially when it is no longer applicable.

Mathematically, because we will soon be entering period of high COE quantity(starting from 2024, as 2015 was the start of exponential COE quota increase till 2019), this extended  lagging calculation simply prevents COE prices from dropping faster than they should.

Scholars are really scholars... good in math.. really know how to benefit govt coffers

My car just turned 8 years old yesterday. Dunno if can see 50k COE in 2025.

 

If judging by their current calculation method, it will never happen.

They are "borrowing" additional COE from the future, which means the future prices will be kept high as well.

Basically they are trying to minimize the impact of short term. Their ultimate plan is to spread out the COE's available so that it's the same every year instead of current cycle of high low period.
