VRT on importing an Infiniti Q70?

Hi there,

What is the VRT on an Infiniti Q70 3.5-litre hybrid? The tax office tell me to bring it in and they will then tell me how much it will be. But if the VRT is too high I will have to bring it out of the country and most likely lose money on it. So can you help?

Hi Eamonn,

Much of this is going to depend on the age of the Q70 you’re looking at. If it’s a 2017 model, for example, I’m going to estimate that it’ll attract around €3,500 of VRT and NOx levy, but then obviously you’ll have to pay 23 per cent VAT and 10 per cent customs charges on top of that, and those will depend on the purchase price of the vehicle.

If it’s a newer Q70 than that, you could well be looking at more than €5,000 in VRT and NOx, plus the VAT and the customs duty.

Your best bet would probably be to see if you can source one from Northern Ireland (and quick, before someone changes the Protocol!) as that avoids the VAT and customs duty.
