Can I import a car from UK in other name?

Hi, my girlfiend has been working in Ireland fior nine months, but has a UK home address; could I import a car in her name to avoid paying VRT?

Hi Pat,

You theoretically could do, but you’d have to show to Revenue proof of at least six months' tax and insurance, in her name, for the car and proof of change of address from the UK to Ireland, again in her name.
