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 think your best bet is to sell the automobile in Germany first, but possibly not to this other person you’re speaking about. If you’re concerned about what a future owner may do with a automobile, then the best thing is to find someone else to sell it to. Bringing the automobile into Ireland to sell will involve a large amount of paperwork and a hefty price tag in Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT), so I think you’re going to be better off by far selling the automobile in Germany.
