Import costs on a 2013 camper from the North?


I am looking at a camper in Antrim, a 2013 Globecar. The price being asked is £18k. Being 2013 would I be liable for VRT and/or any other charges?

Hi David,

The year of the camper isn't as important as when it arrived into Northern Ireland. And in fact, if you can prove that it has been used privately by someone living in Northern Ireland "for a reasonable amount of time" (Revenue's words, not ours), then no VAT or import duty will be payable, just VRT. For campers that's a flat rate of just €200.
