'Import tax' between EU countries?
I have been researching the possibility of Re-registering our MH in Poland.
I anticipated being required to prove that VAT had been paid in UK on initial sale, but to my surprise I found that re-registering would incur an 'Excise tax' of 18.6% of the value.
What happened to 'Free movement of Goods'?
This has nothing to do with Brexit, as when we checked on our car purchase of a secondhand car from Germany 2-3 years ago we found the importing dealer provided proof of the tax having been paid, albeit at a much lower rate than 18.6%, which is charged on vehicles with engines over 2lt.
I welcome others' experience of re-registering an EU VAT-paid car in another EU country and any tax requirement.
