Specific import laws of United Kingdom.

Your vehicle has to meet all of the required eligibility criteria as per the Road Vehicle Regulations 1986 ย and the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989.ย  If the vehicle is being imported permanently, it is essential to meet all safety and environment regulations. You can get it done by getting more information under the Individual Vehicle Approval scheme.

As with any import, there are duties and taxes that have to be paid while there is VAT on the imported vehicles. However, exemptions on the taxes are available if your vehicle is eligible. The criteria include:

  • Moving to UK permanently.
  • Re-importing a vehicle exported from UK in the past.
  • If you are a U.S citizen and donโ€™t intend staying for more than 6 months in Birmingham.

However, if you are not eligible for any of these, you will be required to pay all the taxes and VAT when the vehicle is imported to UK. It is essential that the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are notified before the import by filing the โ€œNotification of Vehicle Arrivalsโ€ form. After the process is completed, you will be required to pay the VAT. If you donโ€™t pay VAT, there are additional penalties. Some of the important documents that you have to submit include:

  • Title deed of the vehicle.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Emission and other safety inspection certificates.
  • Proof of ownership- passport, photo ID/driving license.
  • Bill of Lading.

You are allowed to ship the vehicle from USA using RORO or container shipping. When you work with an experienced shipping service like A1 Auto Transport, they will be able to guide you best about the method of shipping to opt for.

Contact the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency as it is essential to have the โ€œVehicle Import Packโ€. If you are shipping a vehicle that is older than 10 years, you might face issues as there are restrictions placed on it. After the vehicle has been imported, it is essential that you register and insure it as quickly as possible. Your vehicle might require to be transported to Birmingham from the port as you cannot drive it unless it is registered and insured.ย  As you will be required to present the documents and receipts of the tax paid at the time of registration, keep them safe.
