    A 1979 car was imported from the uk and registered in 2009. It was put in storage never used/taxed so has no registration cert. Is it possible to change ownership of the vehicle using the RF100 ?

    How do you mean it has no registration cert? If it was registered, it must have something

    You have to tax it to receive a log book when you vrt a vehicle

    OP have you tried taxing it using motor tax online see if they try charge you back tax for it.
    If not try have someone else register it in their name using the form for "lost" books

    Not possible to tax on line as arrears (since 09) Tried applying for duplicate book but forms sent back saying no vrc exists for this vehicle as it has never been taxed. A book will issue following 1st taxation. Any more idea's

    I think it would be perfectly possible to change the ownership, removing any tax arrears in the process. I don't know if the RF100 is the right form but I suspect it is. Once the Owner taxes it, the vrc will be issued.

    I will chance sending an old type pre 93 change of ownership form with the RF100 as there's no facility on the RF100 form to change the ownership.

    At the time (2009) you would have sent away the Importation Form received when VRT was paid along with a note giving the name and address of the new Owner. They would then receive an updated version of the Importation Form which would then generate a VLC on 1st Taxing. You definitely didn't use an RF100.

    Not sure if this still applies. I would just ring Shannon and see what they have to say.
