OK, well its a start! The car would be registered in a friend’s name in Northern Ireland first and then I would import would be the plan so yeah very similar to yourself. Key for me though is to maintain the donor cars age so it’s a classic when it comes to Ireland. Can you tell me more about how you do that part in UK properly?
Andrew this is great to hear that the revenue recognised the original car age. I am considering a cobra build and was going to try figure out if I built it on a donor over 30 years old, have it registered in UK and then import would that work. If I am correct the VRT is a flat €200 for cars over 30years but not sure if I have to pay import duty etc! Any more detail you can share on your experience would be great
