Registering a classic

    Hi, I brought back a car from the UK about 15 years ago to restore. I didn't declare it then as I was told by revenue that i could carry on and register it when it's finished. I'm nervous now as I don't know what they will charge me when I do register it. Anybody been through this,would appreciate any
    advice.

    Cheers Paul.

    Hi there,

    I've moved your thread across to the Motors forum where people may be better able to help.

    is it in your name and more to the point ,do you have the UK registration doct (V5C) ?

    My instinct says that your car was in the country when the current set of regs came about .

    that's good.

    I suppose you'd have to throw yourself on the mercy of the Revenue. In theory there would be a charge for late payment of VRT even though you actually can't re-register it until it is a going concern. It's a percentage of the VRT x the delay, the VRT would be €200 so it wouldn't be a vast sum.

    That's a relief, I can live with a couple of hundred euro, I thought it might run into thousands given the time I have it.
    Thanks for the reply,appreciate it.

    don't take it as gospel, it's an opinion,only Revenue can give you the actual position.
