What Taxes and Duties Must I Pay before Shipping a Car to Slovenia?

When you ship a car to another country, expect to deal with foreign import restrictions. If you hire a professional shipping company to ship your car to Slovenia, their transport specialists will help you comply with the import laws.

This makes it much easier to get a car lawfully into the country. Trying to accomplish an international auto transport without all of the necessities or knowledge of foreign policy is nearly impossible. Start looking for transport services months in advance.

After your shipping services are booked, it’s time to prepare for the transport. Usually, your bill for the transport isn’t due until the car is safely delivered to its destination. However, this isn’t the only cost associated with your car’s transport to Slovenia. Various taxes and duties apply to the import as well. Your tax rates are based upon several details- for instance, the vehicle type.

  • 20% VAT.
  • Registration tax based on price and CO2 emissions.

The tax rates can change as the country sees fit. Call the Embassy of Slovenia to confirm the tax rates associated with your vehicle import. It’s best to call them a few weeks before the transport date. You’ll need to take the receipt up to Customs as part of the proof required to earn import approval.

Without specific details, it’s hard to determine the total cost of the transport with shipping services and taxes included. An overseas transport can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars upwards to five thousand dollars.
