I'm thinking of purchasing a automobile in Northern Ireland and then importing it to the south. I understand about the VRT procedure, but can you explain what the story with paying the VAT is? When? Where? Etc.

Hi Ann Marie,
You’ll only have to pay VAT if the automobile is younger than six months, or has less than 6,000km on the clock. If you have to pay VAT, you’ll be told the amount during the VRT inspection process.
