Hi



I seem to recall reading somewhere on the forum that if you had imported a car, you had to keep it for a minimum of 2 years before you are allowed to sell it. Is anyone able to confirm this ??



Also, is there a way that you can legally 'authorise' a friend to sell it on your behalf should you not be in the country at the time of sale ?



Many Thanks



Paul

When we imported ours,a nice big red stamp was put in the log book,i asked why and was told that it is to prevent you selling and making an instant profit.After 2 years you can have it cancelled and sell the car.

Don't know if someone can sell on your behalf, will see if i can find out for you.

It can be done. The person selling your car for you would need a Power of Attorney drawn up by a local solicitor (costs about 50 i think).Has to be specific to the car.

reg no,engine number etc,and to who and how the money is paid.

It depends if you pay the extra 10% duty as to if you can sell it right away or not and if your log will will have it written on the log book in red that you cant sell for 2 years, but if yu have paid that extra 10%,you can sell it the next day.

Zero



I think I paid quite enough to import it without any extra taxes.



Will check the log book for the 'red writing'.



Thanks for the advice.

Just that when i paid the duty on a car,i made sure that it could be sold right away,so that incured the extra 10%

so with that no red writing was put on the log book.



Hope that helps.



And yes,your right,enough is enough when paying the duty,forget the extras
