I might be VRTing a currently UK-registered Japanese import, from 1991. The V5 does not state a date of first registration. Instead it says date it entered UK. I don't think this is a huge issue, but when estimating VRT on Revenue's site, it gives June 1991 as first date of registration, meaning it would not qualify for vintage VRT. But the certificate of cancellation of registraion from Japan states it to be March 1991, meaning it can be cheap VRT in two weeks. My question is, if Revenue has June on file can I produce cert of export to dispute it?

Yes, you should be able to. More importantly, you should be able to find the vehicle’s original production date from Japan, using the chassis VIN — https://japancarhistorycheck.com is a good place to start.
