If you need to import your vehicle into Austria from any other country of the EU you don’t need to pay taxes as the EU is a single customs community. You would have to purchase a short-term insurance as well as the license plates for the time being.
However, if you want to move your car permanently, you’d have to abide by the relevant regulations. You would need to submit a wide range of documentation, including:
- NOVA registration fees and taxes.
- Certification of conformity.
- Proof of ownership.
- Bill of lading.
- Certificate for emissions.
Importing from outside of the EU.
The import regulations of the country for importing from outside of the EU are rather different. You would have to provide the required documents in order to prove the value of the vehicle. Furthermore, you have to produce a T1 consignment note as well as a declaration for the import. In certain situations, you can get a discounted rate of taxes if you provide preferential proof of origin. You are also going to have to pay the necessary duties and taxes which include 10% duty, 20% turnover tax, and NOVA or consumption tax. Keep in mind that the authorities can wave about 10% of the associated duties if you manage to prove preferential origins.
You would also have to convert your vehicle to fit the local regulations as set forth by the Austrian Ministry of Transport, Innovation, and Technology. This includes abidance by the rules for lights, emissions, and noise. If you want to receive any further information regarding the entire process or you need any further assistance with figuring out how to proceed, you can always contact the Embassy of Austria in Washington, D.C.
