Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Revenue that vehicle registrations cannot be processed without satisfactory proof of ownership for a number of reasons, including ensuring the correct categorisation and history of vehicles through ownership records, and verifying a vehicle’s point of origin for taxation purposes.

Revenue has published extensive guidance in relation to the documents and proofs that are required in order to register a vehicle imported from the UK, including Revenue’s policy that UK vehicles will not be registered in the absence of the V5C, all available on Revenue's website.

The V5C, and other relevant documentation, is essential to the integrity of the registration process, as it provides the identity, history, ownership, and other particulars of the vehicle in question.

Notwithstanding, Revenue have advised that due to the extenuating circumstances of this case, they will contact the individual concerned with a view to finding a solution.
