Purchased in UK 3 years ago and now want to register in Ireland

    I bought a tractor in the north about 3 years ago and never registered it as its not on the road a lot. I did however insure it through the UK plates this summer.

    I now want to sell it. I have an invoice from the NI garage. I don't have a V5 logbook for the tractor or a shipping form.
    How do I register it now? Or if someone buys it from me how would they register it?

    you can't register it without the V5C. You'll have to figure out some way of getting one, there are posts here and in Motors about this with suggestions.

    Be aware that The Insurance Company probably will have informed Revenue after a month or so that you have it in the Country and on the road.

    They way I would do it is by using someone’s address you know in Northern Ireland/ U.K. use the v62 form and apply for a new v5. Might cost £25, you’ll have a v5 in 4-6 weeks

    Probably? Definitely more like. There is a legal obligation for the insurer to inform the Revenue. This has been the position since 1st Jan 2010, although it was a bit later in that year that Revenue was receiving monthly updates.

    Section 142 of the Finance Act 1992 as amended by the Finance Act 2010

    Indo Article - 10 Aug 2010

    However, that doesn't mean that they go chasing everyone reported to them. They prioritise the big fish (at a guess).
