Written answers (Question to Finance)

To register an imported used car, a person must produce the ‘foreign registration certificate’ or ‘certificate of de-registration’ as issued by the relevant registration authority in the ‘exporting’ State. The procedures for registering an imported used car and the documents required are clearly set out on Revenue’s website at www.revenue.ie/en/importing-vehicles-duty-free-allowances/guide-to-vrt/vehicle-registration-tax/procedure-at-the-ncts-centre.aspx and the NCTS website at www.ncts.ie/1155, which may be of interest to the Deputy.

Revenue has advised me that on learning of the person’s difficulties invited him to attend a meeting at its Cork office to discuss the matter. This meeting has since taken place and the matter is now fully resolved.
