Hi just wondering if anyone has imported a camper into Ireland lately, have been trying to gather some information on how much the V.R.T. might come to as neither customs + excise or the tax authorities have been of any help.
Ive been told i will need to pay 13.5% of the open market selling value of the van i bring in but no one can tell me how much that will be before i roll up to rosslare to register it on Irish plates. There is an extremely complicated form that involves comparing the prices of vans for sale in Ireland with similar vans for sale in the UK but i cant make sense of it really.
Would be interested to hear if any one has brought in a camper and much you were charged for VRT to try and get some idea of what it might cost if we were to bring in a van.
Hope it's easier to do than bringing the M/H into France. We have been trying to re-register ours in France as we are resident here but after 6 months don't seem much closer! And that is with the local garage helping us!
Give Bill Lupton at the motorcaravan club of ireland a ring on 01/8251364,he might be able to help you.I think Nora+Neil are fairly right in their thinking,one way or another it makes importing a van very expensive.
