Customs Duty Calculator Ireland

Reliable VAT & Customs Duty Calculators Ireland

VRT Ireland is a leading provider of professional customs declarations and Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) services, including the provision of VAT and customs duty calculators in Ireland. Our dependable VAT & customs duty calculators are beneficial for clients that wish to ascertain the duties and fees associated with importing cars from the UK. 

All vehicles imported into the Republic of Ireland from the UK must undergo customs declarations, and customs duties must be paid where due and in the correct amount. This amount varies depending on many factors, such as whether the vehicle has been imported from Northern Ireland or in Great Britain, whether or not the vehicle’s first registration was done within the last six months or not, and whether or not the vehicle has accumulated 6,000 km or less. 

The process of calculating VAT and customs duties in Ireland is very complex, with many variables that directly affect the total payable during the processing of customs declarations, which is why it’s important to have a reputable, trusted partner such as VRT Ireland to assist with the import process every step of the way. 

 

The following page will help you to calculate the amount of customs duty and VAT you will need to pay when importing a vehicle from the UK to Ireland.


We provide an online service which greatly simplifies the customs declarations process and takes the hassle out of completing customs declarations. The custom declaration is then lodged with the revenue commissioners on your behalf.

Customs Duty Rates for Vehicles Imported from the UK

Export Country Country of Origin* Customs Duty Rate VAT Rate
UK UK 0% 23%
UK Third Country (e.g. USA or Japan) 10% 23%
UK EU (e.g. Germany or France) 10% 23%

*Country of Origin

The country of origin for a vehicle origin typically means where the vehicle was manufactured not where you are importing the vehicle from.

Therefore in most cases vehicles that have been manufactured in the UK are subject to 0% customs duty and vehicles manufactured outside with UK (e.g. Germany, USA) and imported from UK to Ireland are subject to 10% customs duty.
