Will this imported car attract VAT and duty?

Hi,

I would like to buy car from Northern Ireland that was brought from UK mainland two months ago and registered by an independent dealer. Car still has UK reg. Do the VAT of 23 per cent and customs duty still apply to me?

Hi Vlad,

I'm afraid so in most circumstances. The only exception will be a car predominantly made in the UK. Double-check with Revenue of course.
