Attention Export Customers

If you are a NON European Union customer wishing to permanently export a used VAT Qualifying vehicle outside of the EU then it is possible for you to claim back the VAT on the purchase price of the vehicle. This only applies to certain used vehicles that are invoiced as VAT Qualifying.

We have a good selection of used VAT qualifying vehicles in stock. These vehicles are invoiced with VAT.

For example a used VAT Qualifying vehicle purchased at £25000.00 will show a VAT content of £4166.66 on the invoice. This means that you have the potential to claim the VAT back once the vehicle is permanently exported outside of the E.U.

*Please note this facility is not available to E.U. customers. We do not offer specific tax advice to individual customers. Please check with UK Customs and Excise to ensure that you qualify for this facility before you make your purchase.

The staff were great went to a lot of trouble to make sure I had all the information I needed about the car, gave me a cup of tea and left me to look through the paperwork. Answered all my questions. The car looked lovely and I was introduced to the mechanic who works on the cars. Passed AA inspection with flying colours, just one small adjustment was needed which Becks Evans workshop sorted. I was met at Sidcup station and driven to the car showroom payment was quick and easy and I left with a package of information on the car ensuring I had filled in the slip to go off to DVLA. I would most definitely recommend buying a car from Beck Evans, great car, great and efficient service.
