Potential VRT implications of trade with the UK post-Brexit

Overview

If you trade with the United Kingdom (UK) post-Brexit, the relevant rules of trade may change.

Most vehicles imported into the state from overseas are sourced in the UK.  Customers will therefore have to be aware of the implications of Brexit on the vehicle trade. 

If the UK approves the Withdrawal Agreement there will be no change to the registration process during the transitionary period.  The information outlined here relates to procedures which may be in place in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Vehicles brought in post-Brexit will be subject to Vehicle Registration Tax, VAT and Customs Duties. There will also be implications for the recognition of UK type approvals once they leave the European Union. Customers are advised to keep up to date with these changes when considering purchasing in the UK.
