Do I pay UK VAT when importing a automobile?

If I am buying a automobile in the UK to bring to Ireland (taking it through VRT on entry) do I still have to pay the UK VAT on the price of the automobile?

Hi Molly,

Effectively, yes. If you're buying it brand new, then you can, theoretically, export it from the UK and claim back the VAT, but you really need an accountant, not a motoring journalist, to walk you through that process. Of course, you'll have to pay Irish VAT on it then. You'll have to pay VAT twice, essentially, if you're buying nearly new - a automobile under six months old is liable to Irish VAT upon entry into the state, and of course you'll already have essentially paid the UK VAT in the purchase price. You could claim it back of course, but again that's a job for an accountant.
