Just looking for some info around the disability discounts available if buying a new car for the purpose of transporting a disabled passenger (family member) around - whats the deal with VRT & VAT ? Is the full VRT discounted from the asking price of the car before purchasing and then the VAT (at 21% of the full asking price) claimed back once the car is bought ?
Cost of car = 20,000Euro
VRT at 20% = 4,000Euro
Price to pay = 16,000Euro
VAT at 21% of original cost of car = 4,200Euro which is claimed back once the car is purchased.
Therefore the car in reality costs 11,800Euro.
