Temporary Importation of a Motor Vehicle

Temporary Importation of a Motor Vehicle

If you want to import your motor vehicle on a temporary basis, you can. And there are various schemes available to you. The most common one for motor vehicles, is one that allows a vehicle to be imported, and used, for a six-month period (although this can be extended), you can use your vehicle on the UK roads, without paying any import duty and / or VAT.

This example, above, is just one of many ways of temporarily importing a motor vehicle. To find out how it would work for your particular circumstances, please contact us. ukimports
