I'm planning to buy a van that has been used and taxed as a commercial vehicle, but I will use it as private vehicle. Since it has paid tax for almost a full year do I just pay the difference in price or I'll have to pay the full amount?

I'm getting a Land Rover Discovery 4 very soon and it's registered as a commercial vehicle. I don't have the usual things to prove I'm using it as a work vehicle. What can I do or if not how do I go about declaring it private?

I'm hoping you can help me with something. I recently found your crew cab and commercial article and found it very interesting. I'm currently in an odd position. I'm looking for a crew cab SUV that would be used for work and domestic but I am not a registered business. So the crew cab would need to be reverted back to the original (much higher) tax bracket. I've heard that a PPS number can be used as a tax number and that would be the main hurdle handled. I was wondering if you or your readers have any experience doing this?
The last thing I want is buying an SUV only to find out I can't tax it.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a 191 Ford Kuga Utility four-seat commercial that I'm looking in the near future to use privately. Is this as simple as insuring and taxing it as a private vehicle or are there any other steps, i.e re-registering it as a private vehicle?
Thanks in advance for your help

I would like to know if the Volkswagen Grand California van is available now in America? I’m looking for this type of camper. It has everything I need and it’s very compact, not huge like most RV campers, this is about the size of a conversion van or little bit bigger. Also, can I get this camper in the State of Georgia?
Please get back to me.
Thank you, John

I am currently office based for work with the requirement to visit building sites from time to time. I am considering buying a Ford Transit Connect van, 1.5-litre that is more practical than my current car for visiting sites. I would therefore need the van for work and private purposes as I cannot afford to have a seperate car for private use only. What type of tax and insurance by law do I need for this scenario (private/commercial) and what would be the approx cost of same?

Thinking of buying a used electric Nissan NV200 in Ireland and taxing and insuring it privately and using it as my private car for non-commercial use. Do I have to pay VAT and would it qualify for low tax?
