    Buying a car from Jersey

    Looking in to buying a car from Jersey, anyone ever done this before? I'm pretty sure it's going to be classed as an import but what implications does this have? I have checked insurance and it seems to be exactly the same price as a normal UK car, should I be concerned about anything else?

    Are you talking new or 2nd hand ??
    Used cars there are not always the bargain they seem. Constant salt air, 40mph speed limit, huge amount of ex hire cars etc....

    This might help

    You are probably liable for import duty or VAT.

    I know that bringing cars in from the USA attracts import duty for used cars up to 10 years old but not over.

    For new cars, you'll be liable to pay UK VAT (as I was when I bought an Alfa in Holland) - you pay the tax of the country of registration, not the country of purchase.

    But I realise that you're planning to buy used - and that the car has already been in the UK - so you might be OK but you do need to check customs liability before you commit...
