    Forget about the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval classification. The Revenue's VRT categories are the ones that matter.

    VRT category C = flat rate €200.

    NOX charge only applies to VRT category A.

    As its not an EU reg vehicle will you also be liable for VAT ????

    I've imported a few cars from Japan and they usually don't let you pick it up until the vat and customs fees are paid. Maybe different for an Australian import

    Thank's Macplaxton for that information ,(did not see that when I was looking at it)yes all vat and customs are paid on it .I think ill will buy it so ,as iv got insurance quote of 336 euro( 3000miles limit).Should i go with ZV plate or 1982 plate ,or what is the pros and cons of each ,sorry to go off topic.

    Plate wise won't matter.

    Purely from an aesthetic pov, go for an 82 plate. ZV plates look shíte at this stage at 5 digits.

    82 all the way!

    you won't have much room to manoeuvre now having said you're off to buy it..

    It will need a CVRT before you can tax it and I'd double check you can insure it, I always thought classic insurance on commercials wasn't easy to get.

    I got my classic landrover commercial insured through Campion Insurance when no one else would touch it.

    Just curious - if the VAT and customs has been paid, is that not done at the time of registration? Or can VAT and customs be paid separately to VRT ?

    I paid VAT and customs to clear port with a car imported from Canada many moons ago.

    VRT was a different process with a different approach to collection.

    Not for the first time after you get it registered, you can tax it with no test, otherwise you won't get the registration cert.

    I did it last year when VRT ing a vintage commercial
