Do I need to pay VRT on a 2018 model?


I wish to import a UK car into Ireland. It's a 2018 model, but over six months old - do I have to pay VRT?

Hi Kevin,

It depends. If you already live here in Ireland, then yes you will have to pay VRT and, depending on the mileage of the car, you may have to pay VAT too. If you’re moving here to Ireland, and bringing the car with you, you can import it without incurring a VRT charge, but you’ll need to be able to show proof of previous road tax and insurance, and your change of address.
