What is a VAT qualifying car?
A VAT Qualifying Car is a car that has previously been owned by a business or is a brand-new car from a main franchiser. A VAT Registered individual or company buying the car solely for business use or for export outside of the EU can reclaim the 20% VAT from the purchase price.
International clients can make large savings when buying a Brand New or Used VAT Qualifying vehicle. If a car is being exported out of the UK, then the buyer is not required to pay the VAT, 20% deduction on that vehicle (it is also reclaimable if sold to a VAT Registered business or individual within the EU) – if you're wondering How do I reclaim the VAT, the good news is we can take care of this for you, hassle free!
