Importing a car from the EU to UK
I was wondering if anyone from the UK has any experience in importing a classic car from the EU to the UK and would like to share their experience.
More specifically, I am intending on importing a 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint from Belgium. However, since I have never imported a car before I am unsure of the process.
From what I have read on the internet (Hm revenue and customs), since the car is not brand new and is within the EU I do not need to pay duty. And since the car is within the EU the tax is already paid in another country thus no (value added tax) is needed to be paid.
Secondly the options in bringing it back over, I'm guessing either put it in a container or drive it back home (in which I am unsure if I there are any specifics I should be aware about)
Thanks for the help in advance.
