Could you possibly tell me what penalty is payable with VRT when registering a car bought in Northern Ireland after the 30-day period to register has passed?

It depends on how much over the 30 days you’ve gone. Between 30 and 60 days, you’ll pay a penalty equivalent to five per cent of the car’s Irish market value. If it’s more than 60 days, but less than six months, then it’s ten per cent. If it’s more than six months, then it’s an additional five per cent of the value for every month that you’re overdue.
