PostSubject: Help .... importation and how to deal with the paperwork   Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:15 am

Hello,

I'm lucky enough to own Kombi no 371/1200

BUT

it's in a container in the UK with it's import vat paid and a Brazilian registration on it.

I've got a V55/5 and I've got a grip on most of the boxes.

I've managed to convince myself that the only physical changes required are headlights and a rear fog light.

Has anybody here gone through this process before and can perhaps help me with understanding the bit's I'm missing ?

Cheers

Martin

Side repeaters?

side repeaters I hadn't thought about but it's a good point

the speedo I had realised but just decide not to mention it for some insane reason !!

The bit that's doing my head in the most is the V55 really wants me to provide a type approval number/category .... question 11 on the V55

finding someone who has been through this process I suspect would really help.

cheers

You may need an voluntary IVA (individual vehicle approval) to get a type approval number. It involves an inspection by DVLA examiner. I had to get one for a kitcar I built, and it involves taking it to one of their testing stations for them to look at.

You definitely need an IVA and it will probably cost you around £3000 to meet all the necessary modifications required.

Brakes, emissions, speedo, rh headlights, chassis number stickers, side repeaters, fog light, heated front screen etc.

Speak to Ian at Brazilian Kampers.

You will need to have I mport duty codes . You can get these from hmc.gov site search import duties . Then you have to pick the most appropriate commodity code need to be really careful to choose the right code,Your freight handling agent can help . More often than not you will have to pay customs charge to the freight agent before customs release in uk .
Who ever is shipping needs to handle the export docs.

Im happy to discuss this over the phone with you.
