How to make my commercial Kuga private?

Hi,

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

Is the VW Grand California in America?

Hi,

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

Cost to use a Transit Connect privately?

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?

Thanks

Thinking of buying an electric van...

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?

Thanks

Thinking of buying an old Toyota Hilux...

Hi,

I already have a car in my name for private use and I'm thinking of buying an old 2002 Toyota Hilux to have some fun driving an old truck. So, I have two questions: can I register its ownership without having a company? Can I purchase classic insurance for this Hilux?

Thanks in advance!!

How to change a Range Rover Sport's status?

Hi guys,

I am looking to buy a 2013 Range Rover Sport, a 3.0-litre diesel that is currently designated as a business commercial vehicle with €333 tax. There are five seats and no VAT on the sale off the vehicle. Once purchased, I wish to tax it privately and also insure it privately as a passenger car. Can you outline this process and if it’s straightforward and possible?

Thanks

Frank

Does a private buyer pay VAT on a van?

I put down a deposit on a Ford Transit van, I am retired and will only use this van for private use. Do I have to pay VAT? I am not registered for VAT and do not have a business. Can I get the van registration changed for private use?
