This would only apply to cars registered in the UK up to Dec 31st 2020.

A good example would be a 2018 Hyundai, built in South Korea and imported and VAT'd in 2018. The VAT was paid once due to it being imported, so theoretically it should be exempt if reimported into the EU (RoI) again in 2021 or 2022. I think a couple of larger second hand importers will be looking at it and may challenge it. This is what I heard around the beginning of the summer.

SIMI boys will be having wet dreams tonight as it increases prices of desirable younger imports meaning they get to shift Irish cars at much higer prices.

Long term; if it passes, it means car prices here will only go up, and there will be a lot less choice.
But in that case,it will depend on the amount of spendable cash being available.....which is not looking too hot right now

And the NI will know why and it'll possibly become a buyers market knowing there's no market down here.

Interesting times as they say....

Surely that’s 1985 ?
Don’t think the Orion was around in ‘65.

And you are right too !! I got mixed up in the cars..... I also had a 1965 Cortina at one stage ( long gone, unfortunately,, and of course the 1985 Orion. All of which remains is the old brown logbook.

Hey this is Ireland. I'm sure if you look hard enough, you could find someone to actually sell you a '65 Orion brown book

This of course will throw up its own issues.

Its very clear. If you haven't paid the VRT by 31/12/20, you will also be paying duty and VAT
I changed the address on a 1991to a Derry address to avoid this issue

How? still a UK registered vehicle. If there's no deal, there's no deal in NI too I guess.

It looks like the imports from the uk for classics will be a thing of the past. I was proceeding under the assumption that there would be a last minute deal and we would pay 200 euros as before. I'm looking at a car in the uk at the moment and about to close out the deal. Don't know what to do now. It's an April 1991 car.
Anyone got any further insight or suggestions?

Same scenario for me, I am just looking for the right one to pull the trigger on 1988-1990. Last chance saloon for paying the 200 VRT on a v8 Landy.....

Even if last minute deal you will still have to pay customs and pay a customs agent to handle it. You can’t even see your car in customs without that agent present.
Don’t believe you could drive the car on the ferry either as it needs to be dereged and would have to enter customs first before enters the ‘state’.

So if petrol I would import now, if diesel would wait.
