The applicable rate of VRT charged on imported cars is calculated as a percentage of the Open Market Selling Price (OMSP) of the vehicle. The OMSP is the price that the car would sell for in the Irish market if it were being sold by a dealer or manufacturer. The rate of VRT also varies according to the vehicle classification. An estimate of the cost of VRT for any given vehicle can be more accurately established using an online VRT calculator.

In addition to VRT, NOx tax is now also applicable to most imported vehicles. The term “NOx tax” refers to a tax based on Nitrogen Oxide emissions. This tax, introduced on January 1st 2020, is a part of the VRT process and is applied to all vehicles being imported into the country. It was introduced as a disincentive to importing high emission vehicles, which may contribute to excessive air pollution.

The rate of the NOx tax is based on the level of Nitrogen Oxide emissions produced by the car. It is charged per milligram of emissions per kilometer (mg/km) and is based on the Euro Emissions Standard of the vehicle. The Euro Emissions Standard is a system used to measure the amount of pollution produced by a vehicle.

In addition to VRT AND NOx tax, cars imported are subject to VAT and Customs duties.

Customs duty is a tax that is charged on goods that are imported into the country, including cars. The amount of customs duty charged on an imported car depends on several factors, including the value of the car and where it was manufactured.

The applicable rate of Customs & Excise duty can vary depending on the specific type of car being imported, its age, and its origin.

VAT is also applied to cars imported and is calculated on the OMSP of the car in the Irish market and applied at the prevailing rate.

Vat and customs charges can be more accurately assessed using an online Customs Duty & VAT Calculator.

It’s important to note that VRT is payable when the car is registered in Ireland, and the payment must be made before the car can be driven legally on Irish roads. 

All vehicles imported to Ireland must be registered within 30 days of their arrival in the country. Failure to pay the VRT can result in penalties and fines, and in some cases, the seizure of the vehicle. So it’s important to ensure that the payment is made within the timeframe allowed.

Overall, while importing a used car from the UK may be less attractive than before, it may still make sense in some cases. Careful consideration of the total costs involved will allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision and potentially get a bargain.
