Moving Short Term.
If you plan to stay in Austria for a short period of time, you may still need to bring your vehicle with you so you can travel around at your own leisure. You will not be required to pay any duties as long as you reside in the EU because the European Union is a single customs community so you will only need to purchase a license plate transfer and short-term insurance for your vehicle while you stay in Austria.
Moving Long Term or Permanently.
If you plan to permanently settle in Austria, you will need to prepare your vehicle for a permanent move as well. You will need to provide the following documentation when moving permanently:
- Bill of Lading.
- T1 consignment note.
- Emissions certificate.
- Proof of ownership.
- Bill of Vehicle sale.
- Proof of insurance.
- Nova Tax.
- Receipt of registration fees.
Importing your Vehicle from Outside the EU.
If you are importing your vehicle and you don’t currently reside in the countries affiliated with the European Union. In order to successfully import, you will need to ensure that you have all the required documentation needed to provide customs with the proof of vehicle ownership as well as value. You will also need to show a consignment T1 Note and a Declaration that is related to importing your vehicle. You may be able to earn discounts through customs by bringing all the original proof needed to import successfully. You may also need to pay certain duties as well when importing to Austria.
You may be required to pay 10% duty that is figured by using your car’s value. You may be required to also pay a 20% turnover import tax, and you will also be required to pay NOVA or consumption standard tax that is payable while importing. If you reside in a European country that is not a part of the European Union, then the authorities may decide to waive the 10% duties that are associated with importing.
When importing from the United States, you will need to be aware of the importing regulations for exporting. You will need to make sure that the vehicle meets all specifications of the country you plan to ship to. This will take some time to do but must be done in order to successfully ship. This process is also expensive as well and must meet the rules and regulations set forth by the Ministry for Transport Innovation and Technology. These regulations will involve the emissions, noise, as well as the lights. You may have to make a few changes that will be acceptable to Austria customs before you can export it out of the United States.
