How much VRT on a €37,000 car?

Hello.

If I buy a new car with an on-the-road price of €37,000, how much is the VRT in cash and also the VAT? If VAT is 23 per cent does that make €8,510?

Thanks

Martin.

Can I dispute a Japanese car's reg date?

I might be VRTing a currently UK-registered Japanese import, from 1991. The V5 does not state a date of first registration. Instead it says date it entered UK. I don't think this is a huge issue, but when estimating VRT on Revenue's site, it gives June 1991 as first date of registration, meaning it would not qualify for vintage VRT. But the certificate of cancellation of registraion from Japan states it to be March 1991, meaning it can be cheap VRT in two weeks. My question is, if Revenue has June on file can I produce cert of export to dispute it?

Does this VRT bill for a 2016 Golf seem right?

Hi,

I am looking to buy a 2016 VW Golf 1.6 Match Edition TDI. The car is imported from Northern Ireland. When I use the VRT calculator it gives me a VRT rate of almost €8,000. Does this mean that I have to pay €8,000 on top of the €13,000 I’m already spending on the car?

Kindest regards,

Tony

Is my dad's GTR exempt from VRT?

Hi,

My dad is thinking about moving to Ireland for good from a different European country and he would like to bring his left-hand-drive 2015 Nissan GT-R with him. He has owned the car for over eight months now. Would he be exempt ftom VRT, VAT and duty charge? It's hard to calculate the VRT on this car but I think it could be around €30k?!

Thanks, Paul

Can I pay the old VRT rate on import?

If I have imported a car from the UK on 29th Dec and booked online at the NCT centre but the inspection date is not until 12th Jan 2021, am I entitled to pay the old VRT rate? It's not my fault the centre is unable to look at my car until after the 31st Dec deadline.

Can I claim back VRT importing to NI?

I live in the Northern Ireland. If I buy a new car from a dealer in the Republic, can I claim back the VRT and pay UK import duties? Would this be financially wise?
