Do I need to pay VAT on this CLA import?

I got a 2013 CLA from Newry that arrived before Brexit but wasn’t registered in NI and was sold back to England. I’m unable to get my VRT done as they say I need to pay VAT also. Is there any way around this?

Hi Adedapo,

We don't seen any way you can avoid that, I'm afraid, as the car was first registered in England and is there now (if we are understanding that correctly).
