    Just been talking to a dealer in Norther Ireland. He has a car I am interested in.
    Its English registered though, not Norther Ireland.

    He told me he can prove he brought it into the country before Jan 1st and therefore it is not liable for VAT and customs duty.
    The rule states that the car must have been registered in Northern Ireland before January 1st 2021, to avoid VAT and Customs Duty.
    He said it is registered in the trade.

    Anyone know if I am still liable for VAT and Import Duty if I purchase?

    If you can prove it was in NI before Brexit then its VRT only

    NI dealers must have imported a ton of stuff before the end of 2020.
    Checked a few there for sale in NI and they're un-taxed since Nov '20

    Just an update for anyone interested.

    My registration process was not completed yesterday in the NCT centre as they would not accept the invoice from the transport company as proof the car entered NI prior to Jan 1 2021.
    Despite it being a completely legit invoice on company headed paper showing all relevant details;
    Date, Car details, truck drivers name, collection address, delivery address, sailing time, sailing operator, sailing reference and company stamp.

    The guy in the the NCT said revenue wouldn't accept it even though it is clearly stated on the nct website as valid proof. I asked him had he been in touch with revenue and he said he had. I found that hard to believe as he had my paperwork for approx 6 minutes!
    He said a hand written invoice would not be accepted. So I said grand I'll get them to type one up and he then changed tack and said revenue would't accept it all all.
    When I pointed out it said on the NCT website that it was listed as valid proof he shrugged his shoulders and said he doesn't make the rules and to take it up with revenue.
    I found the whole thing very strange to be honest.

    Why would it say its an acceptable form of proof that the car has entered NI prior to Jan 1st 2021 if its not acceptable?

    Anyway, he told me the invoice between the dealer from where he bought the car should get it over the line. So I am getting that this morning and I am re-booked for Friday.

    It all seems a bit haphazard and as much down to the guy doing the inspections discretion as any rules which is not the way it should be.

    list of nox values per car.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,614 ✭✭✭ lintdrummer


    I have a NOX query if anyone can answer...

    Looking at a car up North and I got a NOX figure online of 146 mg/km.

    Putting this into the Revenue VRT calculator gives a NOX charge of €2450.

    Now I have seen the V5 and the NOX figure on it is 0.014 g/km.

    Putting this into the Revenue calculator gives a NOX charge of €70.

    Presume this is just an error on the VRT calculator?

    Hint 146 milligram/km = .00146 GRAMS /km


    units my friend , first rule of anything scientific, define your units.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,614 ✭✭✭ lintdrummer


    Is 146 mg/km not 0.146 g/km? Which would explain my discrepancy. 0.014 g/km as per V5 would equate to 14 mg/km. That seems like a low number for a 2013 diesel. Either the figure I found online was wrong or the one on the V5 is wrong.
