Log book for import

Hi all.
I bought a very rough non runner tzr 3xv of a local bikevdealer in 2016 .
I didn't get a log book just a Japanese cert with the particulars of the bike and a English form with a translation .
I Also got a sad number.
I wasn't bothered about no book at the time as i was buying it for the track .
I tracked it a bit and did race it for a few years but now I want to put it on the road .
I have made it road legal and
I am now trying to get a tax book for it .
I was in contact with revenue and apparently the bike was imported into Ireland in 2009 but never registered and I am liable for the vrt from 2009 up to 2019 .
It would run into big books .
Anyone any ideas how to get around this ?
Thanks

Re: Log book for import

You're only liable from the date you bought it. Write yourself a receipt dated last week from Michael Mouse at an address up north.

Re: Log book for import

"Sell"it to your wife/brother/etc. and then "buy" it back a week later...once you have a receipt, can't see how you can owe for VRT before you "bought" it..especially as you ""bought" it as a non runner, but were able to sort it and make it road legal, all in the space of a week!
