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

Which cars can fit three child seats?

Hi,

What cars are capable of putting three child seats across the back seats? Ages new born, 2 and 4 years old. So none would be in booster seat just yet. Is it just SUVS or vans? I'm hoping there are some estates capable of this!

Thanks John

What do I pay on a VAT-qualifying car?

Hello,

If I buy a VAT-qualifying car from the UK, am I correct in saying that I deduct the VRT, customs and VAT paid upon entry from the following selling price here and am then liable for Irish VAT on that figure?

E.g. SP = €20,000 - tariff €1,000 - VAT €1,230 - VRT €1,500 = €16,270 so VAT liability of €3,043?

Thanks for any clarification you can give me.
