    My brother has a 29 year old morris but it has never been registered here. He thinks it was a jap import into the uk and never taxed in the uk

    He's been working on it over the last couple of years and its now road worthy.

    He was quoted about €9k in vrt.

    If he leaves it in the garage until next year when its 30 years old, will the vrt reduce to €200?

    A 29 year old Morris you say. I'd love to see a picture of that.

    I don’t believe so , as it’s in the country already.

    get that sorted before 1st jan anyway.. Maybe sell it to a north address and buy it back when it's 30 might be the way to go?

    He lives in the UK and worked on it when he came over here every summer.

    Might be the best option

    if he's already told the NCTS/ Revenue it's here he's on tricky ground.

    ship it back to the UK and bring it in once it is 30 in another name. VRT will then be €200. Other charges may well apply though post Brexit, we don't know yet.

    9000 vrt btw is ludicrous. that would value it at a vast figure no Morris ever attained.


    struggling to think what model Morris built in 1992

    He's waiting on the email with why its so high. But can put it in his partner's name and bring back next year if the cost is as high. (possibly they meant €900)

    Seems its Morris Mini - sold under Morris name in Japan
