Revenue calms the fears of Northern Ireland car dealers
Exporting vehicles from Northern Ireland to the Republic
Northern Ireland car dealers have been told there will be no extra Brexit fees for selling cars from GB into the Republic.
Revenue officials in Dublin have had to calm the fears of car dealers in Northern Ireland assuring them that cross-border trade in British-sourced vehicles would not mean 31% duty.
Northern Ireland car dealers are being assured that they can source their second hand vehicles in Great Britain and sell them across the border without any extra charges.
There is a caveat though for the NI dealers, in that all their vehicles have to be "properly imported" across the Irish Sea.
The Northern Ireland car dealers have been seeking clarification on the rules and "significant changes" surrounding the sale of second-hand vehicles in the wake of Brexit and the new export Protocols.
They have already been assured that VAT will not be applied to the purchase price of vehicles moved from GB to NI.
