I am due to pay VRT on a Kia Niro plug in hybrid (Sept 2017). The OMSP is not available on the VRT calculator, but the recommended retail price is available from the Kia Ireland website. Is it possible to estimate the OMSP based on the RRP and should I bring in the Kia price list when getting the automobile valued by NCT valuers?
