Sorry Corky I wonder could you have a look at this!.........

Buying a new Deauville '08 up the north before the end of march.
6,300 - 8230euro
Vrt - 1050euro

So 9300euro approx total, do I have to add 21% on top of that again??

Am I not already paying the tax on buying it new in the north??

Any help appreciated this is a huge decision for me all done on borrowings.....

Yep u'll have to pay 21% VAT i.e. almost 2000
If you find a bike that is 6 months old and has at least 6000kms on it, you won't have to pay VAT. If either of these conditions aren't met VAT is payable. So much for the EU open market. tosspot revenue bastads...

Why don't you get a 6mth old bike with 6k on it, anyway the first owner always takes a hit on depreciation anyway

21% of the price you paid for it, a receipt would help here
90% sure on this, but open to correction

IMO to make an import economically viable ye gota avoid VAT, i.e. get a bike over 6 months old and over 6k on it. even at that you could get a cracker

"There is no change for Category B (crew cabs, etc.), Category C (commercial vehicles) or Category M (motorcycles other than electric motorcycles)."

This is a quote from a revenue leaflet.

yep always worth checking date of 1st registration on the bike, and if necessary ride the bike for a few months before registering and you may save enough for a new lid to match the bike

Not a chance. Revenue hate letting people off without paying VRT so they examine everything closely. You need and address where the bike was registered to you, utility bills from that address, payslips from the job you were at while living in that address. THEN you may get away with VRT.
