Hi, I'm VAT-registered and looking to import a second hand commercial/crewcab vehicle from the UK. Am I correct that I don't have to pay UK VAT and only VRT when registering the automobile in Ireland?

Can I ask for some advice please? My girlfriend is a German national who has come to live in Ireland. She wants to sell her automobile here in Ireland. The automobile in question is a 2011 Nissan Qashqai - very good spec with a petrol engine. There is a Moldovian national who is interested in buying this automobile, but we are concerned that the automobile will not be registered in Moldova and we are aware that a lot of German automobiles are in Moldova on German plates.
Any help or advice would be appreciated .

I swapped my old van and SUV for an 09 Hyundai Coupe on NI plates and I filled out the log book when I bought it and sent it away to Swansea like it said on it. They have sent it back saying that I need to sort out the log book over in Ireland. Where do I go to do something like that?

Hi, I have purchased a automobile in the UK and paid the VRT here. When I rang about ta it I was told I have to have insurance first and give them the policy number and date of expiry. When I rang an insurance company I was informed that the automobile would have to be taxed first - so checkmate.
Is there a solution to this problem? I only want to insure it for a short while as I bought it to sell it and long term insurance would eat up any profit I hope to make.
