After the procedure for paying SCUTs or tolls, an SMS is sent within 48 hours to the mobile phone, thus confirming the payment.
There are more ways to pay late SCUTs
You can go in person to a CTT store or a Payshop agent. In either case you will have the cost plus the 26 cent administrative fee plus VAT. This is the valid regime for vehicles with UK’s registration.
Please note that these procedures are only valid during five working days within 48 hours of tolling electronics. So, two days after you pass the SCUT or freeway, you have five business days to pay off the debt.

You can also contact the dealership – Brisa e Ascendi – to provide you with the necessary data. Ultimately, after 30 days, the debts are forwarded to the Tax and Customs Authority and will bring increased costs.
