Importing a car from UK to Ireland after Brexit

Since Brexit on January 1st 2021 the costs associated with importing a car has changed and in most cases you are now required to pay :

  • Customs Duty
  • VAT
  • VRT
  • NOX Levy

Our Import Costs Calculator provides a estimate for all of these taxes in one report.
To generate the report simply provide the UK vehicle registration and the price of the vehicle in the UK.

The importation of a vehicle from the UK is now treated as an import from a non-European Union (EU) country so you are required to complete a customs declaration.

A customs declaration is a complex process requiring customs expertise and specialist software.

If a customer declaration is not completed or the vehicle is not registered within 30 days of its arrival in the State, then it is liable to be seized by the authorities.
