This is a reminder of what we had predicted pre-BREXIT times,
Our business has adapted to BREXIT and its effects.
BREXIT has affected certain areas of the international exchanges from in and out of the UK. Customs are back, and they sometimes struggle to understand the rules, and this hinders transactions.
We would like to make exchanges as clear and easy as possible, so here is what happens since the First of January 2021.
IMPORTS TO THE UK
Permanent imports : Import and export duty will only be due, if you are PERMANENTLY importing and registering your car in the UK. Temporary imports :
For all other cases, you are temporarily importing a vehicle that will be used overseas. So no taxes , VAT or duties apply.
IMPORTS TO THE EU
You will not be charged import duty nor VAT :
1. Importing a non-local vehicle (Example : German car to France) We provide EU invoices, no import duty.
2. Local registration types (FRENCH SPANISH PORTUGUESE REG) :
We transfer straight onto your name, no import duty. 3. UK registered cars owned for over 6 months.
3. UK registered cars to imported in the EU
Import duty and VAT is not due if you have owned the UK registered car for more than 6 months, meaning its part of your household, no import duty.
Hassle free, and simple.
