Can I bring two cars to Ireland exempt?

Hi there,

I am going to be moving from UK to Ireland. If I have owned two vehicles for more than six months are both vehicles exempt?

Thanks in advance

Hi Scott,

There shouldn’t be any issue. Anything out of the ordinary will always gets Revenue’s antennae twitching, but as long as you can show proof of change of address, and proof of tax and insurance for at least six months at previous UK address, you should be OK. After all, there’s nothing that says the exemption is specifically limited to one vehicle at a time...
