VRT / Vehicle Registration Tax

What is VRT?

VRT stands for Vehicle Registration Tax which is a tax charged when one registers a new or imported used vehicle in Ireland.

How is VRT calculated?

It is charged based on the Open Market Selling Price (OMSP) of the vehicle as determined by the revenue commissioners. Please see our full suite of VRT Calculators to determine your vehicle’s VRT.

What are the different VRT rates?

The rate at which it is charged depends on the type of vehicle being registered.

For standard passengers cars the tax rate of is based on the CO2 emissions of the car.

Depending on the commercial vehicle the tax rate is either 13.3% or €200.

Some vehicles are exempt from VRT such as ambulances and fire engines.

Finally motorcycles are taxed at a rate based on engine size in cc’s.

When must I pay VRT?

An appointment to have your vehicle inspected at an NCT centre must be made within 7 days of the vehicle entering the State in order to register and pay Vehicle Registration Tax (and any other tax liabilities due on the vehicle). The National Car Testing Service NCTS administer Vehicle Registration Tax on behalf of the revenue commissioners.

You must then complete the registration process and VRT must be paid within 30 days of the vehicle entering the state. In some cases, such as when transferring residence to Ireland from another state you may be exempt from Vehicle Registration Tax provided you meet certain criteria. You will then be issued a registration number. You can then purchase number plates for your vehicle and pay your motor tax.

Where can I find out more?
