Was are so many of the cars listed under 'Donegal' either NI or UK plates?
Surely there's some people the VRT folk could go after
If I'm in the market for a car, I don't want to see ones that I need to either (a) pay VRT on, or (b) drive illegally.
Insurance is cheaper in the North, If young boy racer can get a Northern address he can save himself a few grand on insurance, maybe put it to good use like lowering the car.
Or add the blue lights. Don't forget those! And that irritating noise they make like a "whooo" or something whatever the hell that is all about.
Surely the "Donegal" refers to the location of the seller? Then it's up to the individual seller to disclose where it's registered?
Wasn't there something in the last few days about some local guy winning a case against the revenue with regards to the VRT?
If that were so and was allowed we would see a lot more NI reg cars for sale here.
Didn't see that Muffler.
Interesting if true.
Don't know if this link is allowed so apoligies in advance if its not but this is the case here
According to that the supposedly 'won' case was 3yrs ago!
So if thats true, how come judges are still finding in favour of Revenue when these cases go to court?
Its OK your not the only one. I think though that this is just the start and there is still a long way to go with it
Once legal precedence has been set, does that not mean that all VRT challenges should now win?
Well IMO in a world where the judicial system makes sense then yes but we don't live in that world
He didnt win his case, the way i read it was that the case against him was dismissed by the judge. It merely means his side presented a case which was stronger than the prosecution. He wrote an article and urged others to use the same line of defence as he did and hope that they can win too, but each case is judged independently and now that the state are aware of that line of defence no doubt they will have answer in law for it. He was lucky and nothing else, no precident has been set.
