Change of owner ford 3000 and tax

    Hi all,

    I've invested in a lil ford 3000. Have change of ownership filled out. Brown book with it.

    And would like to tax it.

    I looked up the tax on it and it is saying 102 a year. Vintage is 56.

    Any disadvantage to changing it to vintage?

    For the vintage do you have to be a paid up member of a vintage club ? Maybe that’s for the insurance, worth checking as it might wipe out any potential savings

    Once it is thirty years since it was manufactured it qualifies as a vintage . If it has the old brown tax book it is probably vintage at this stage

    one thing to watch for if getting vintage insurance is to check that it covers farm work if you need it and not just road runs or shows

    The expression light agricultural use was used.

    Join Irish Vintage society to qualify.

    Will finalize Monday
