Moving Companies To Austria from Canada

Moving to Austria from Canada can be a big change, but it doesn’t have to be a complicated move. Canadian residents will find Austria’s climate to be comfortable, and the people are open and welcoming. Residents of Austria enjoy a very good quality of life. The country boasts affordable childcare, education, and easy access to transportation that takes passengers throughout Europe.

German is the most common language in Austria, with English a helpful second language understood by most in the country. Most Canadians are comfortable with both French and English, making a move to Austria very doable.

Can you import your belongings into the country? Is it even affordable?

When it comes to importing your personal goods to Austria, there are several factors to consider. This guide will help you decide what to move and how, making your transition a smooth and easy process.

What are the requirements to import household goods to Austria?

As a member of the European Union, Austria has two different sets of rules for importing: rules for EU member countries and rules for non-EU member countries. Canada is a non-EU member country. Here is what you need to know to import your goods from Canada to Austria:

Most of your household goods will not be subject to import duties or taxes, provided you can provide the appropriate documentation and import your goods within 12 months of your relocation to the country. There are some exceptions to this rule, including alcohol and tobacco, for which you must pay to import more than a personal amount.

  • Form ZBefr 2E – this form is a declaration that you are moving from a non-EU country to Austria.
  • Evidence proving that you are moving your residence in Austria and that you have been outside the EU for at least the past 12 months.
  • Proof of ownership for your household goods showing that you have owned and used them for at least the past six months.
  • Assurance that the household goods will be used for the same purpose in Austria. (as opposed to using these items for business purposes)

What are the requirements to import a vehicle?

If you wish to bring your vehicle with you to Austria, it is best to bring it with you. If you decide to import your vehicle later, you will be subject to a 10% duty assessed on the car’s value and a 20% import turnover tax. You will also need to pay the standard consumption tax, referred to as NOVA.

You will need to show proof of ownership, which can be demonstrated by presenting a clear title, purchase invoice, or bill of sale. You will also need to be able to show that you have been using the vehicle and intend to continue doing so in Austria.

Customs clearance can be complex and there are exemptions for which you may be eligible. For this reason, you should always contact customs to receive up to date guidance before you even begin the process.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
