To import a truck, you pay 22% import duty on the sticker price, shipping cost and marine insurance.
Then you pay 17.5% sales tax on top of all of that. Yes, tax on a tax
Then you pay the registration fees etc etc.

I'm out in Asia at the moment but if I'm back in Houston on Mar 7th, I'll head out there.

what would be the issues if you wanted to bring the truck in to the U.K. / EU for a short while then ship back? Do you need to do all the light conversions?

Steve - I've lost your emails.

i would guess it depends how short a period. The front lights are fine as they are flat beam rather than left right biased like some cars.

Would you be wanting to register the car in the UK? I believe you have 12 months where you could drive it without any re-registration or conversions needing doing. Fater that you would need to do the full SVA test. Basically making the vehicle UK legal, amber directional indicators fog lights etc and pass an MOT test. It would also have to be given a UK registration number etc and taxes paid.

The worst part would be the paperwork. The lighting can all be done to the required standard but made reversible i believe.

Hope this helps.

Ah think the EU may have changed it to 6 months before re-registration.

Oh and be careful it will be classed as an imported car at that point so will attract 20% VAT and 22% import tax being a commercial vehicle. This is why we dont see many truck imports to the UK.
