VRT and tax implications for imported Kombi?

Hi,

I am a teacher as well as part-time farmer. I am looking at changing my car and buying a Volkswagen Transporter Kombi to access outfarm, feedstuff etc. I am looking at sourcing in the UK, but not sure of VRT and then taxing the van. It would be used for farm as we have another family car. The van would be 2016 approx €25,000 euro. Can you advise to VRT rates and tax implications?

Explain how VRT works on extras...

Can you explain how VRT is calculated on optional extras on an imported car? I understand there is a sliding scale depending on age of car. For example what is the additional VRT on a 2017 BMW 520 with €10,000 extras?

How much is the late fee for VRT payment?

Does the VRT late charge of 0.1% of the VRT due start from point of entry or after the 30 days have lapsed? As in, if you register in 40 days time from entry, do you get charged for 10 days or 40 days?

Thanks

Tax and VRT on an imported Defender?

Hi.

Really useful site. I want to import a Land Rover Defender 90 from the North. It was made in June 2008; does this mean it falls under the old or new tax system? I am using it for personal purposes. As far as OMSP for VRT, do you know how the revenue calculates that?

Thanks and best regards

Ger
