If its a used car and tax was paid when new then there is no tax to import it, if its a van or other vehiucal which may have been purchased without tax being paid then you have to pay VAT same as if you buy a used van in this country that has been owned by a VAT registered company so has not had VAT paid on it yet.

Cheers dude, so if all taxes/duty have been paid regarding its residing country ,then none are due to import it here, think that's right .

Yeah I have been involved with cars imported both ways (folks live in France) and as long as its a second hand car and all taxes have been paid on it then there is no tax or import duty just the regestration th change over, you need a certificate of permenent export from the country you are bringing the car from.
