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.
