PostSubject: Vrt in Ireland    Sun Jan 22, 2017 8:53 pm

Hi I don't know if anyone could help me, I live in Ireland and brought a English Brazilian and want to change it to Irish plates my problem is they don't have any over here and they need to value mine and then charge me 30% of the value in tax  to bring it in, I think if I can find three for sale the same as mine and show them how much they are they average the three price so my question is does anyone have any ads of 04 campers that are cheap so I don't have to pay as much Vrt, hope this makes sense.
Thanks

Sorry, I'm a bit confused.....

Is the 30% like an import tax thats a one off payment?

Do you need to change to Irish plates, or buy can you buy a private plate to get round it?

I'm possibly misunderstanding your situation....

Yeah it's like a tax the Irish charged when you bring a car in and yes one off payment, very expensive I will get away with driving it for a while but we have customs road blocks sometimes and they can take the car off you until you pay it, it's a big con. If they look up the price of Brazilians they are all around 20-25k so if I found a few which were cheaper I maybe able to show them and then pay less, sorry it's 13% but that's still slot just to change it over I would rather not but I think I will have to

Can you not do what lots of Brits do with their UK registered cars in Europe? Every now and then, drive it back to the UK so the period it is permanently on Irish roads is segmented? I've known a few people do this with holiday properties abroad. That way your camper can stay on its UK registration.

Looking at the regs Tim, (not looked at them all) but not sure if that would suffice. All seems a bit harsh compared with UK regs.

If I remember Rachelvw, didn't you buy it with a broken engine, which would mean you hopefully got it cheaper than normal. Won't the authorities accept a copy of the receipt as proof of cost, as a basis for the registration tax, it might save a few pounds.
