    Yes that's correct, it would only really be the Tesla models that a VRT charge comes in to play.

    Thanks, reason why I was unsure is that its shows the vrt as 7% of omsp

    If it's originally registered in NI your fine, if it has been britain don't forget about VAT, maybe import duty (but I think the leaf is made in Wales, so that might not apply

    The cars I have been looking at are privately owned in NI so assume registered with the owner

    Just make sure that owner didn’t import from the uk mainland.

    is there a zero NOX charge on Elecv too ?


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 112 ✭✭ frozen3


    Could someone in the know post how importing an EV from UK works now?

    Its all crazy confusing to me

    Looking at a 62kWh Leaf on pistonheads €26000, 2020, 16,000km

    Zero vrt
    Delivered to my door is €500 or so with a haulier

    But what about Vat and all those other bits?

    Will I get in for €29,000?

    No Nox charge, as its fully electric, no exhaust!

    No.

    You will have to add 21% VAT (this goes back up to 23% in a few weeks time) and 10% import duty

    I'm afraid it's end of story. No more car imports from the UK, not even zero VRT zero NOx EVs...

    Welcome to the Brexit, Sir! I'm sorry.

    I wonder is enough of the Leaf made in the uk to be classed as made in the UK, Might not have import duty. - but with the VAT its doesnt make a damn difference.

    This is it, you probably could find a Leaf in NI though. That's still part of the EU for tax reasons, so zero import duty and zero VAT bringing in from there.

    I think theres somewhere that says where it was originally registered. - Its been a while since Ive seen the thingy from the DVLA

    Then duty/customs may be due on it. Separate to the whole VRT thing.

    Only if the driver is smoking.

    The car has to be originally registered in NI. Hence why the car the OP mentioned will attract customs duty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,838 ✭✭✭ User1998


    If the car is properly imported from GB to NI it attracts no vat or customs. ie If it comes with a customs declaration

    Think everyone is waiting for the first person to import from NI to get first hand knowledge of what happens
