QUICKSHIFT MOTORS CAN HELP YOU RECOVER 20% VAT ON YOUR UK CAR PURCHASES

Our company based in the UK, can assist vehicle buyers in the recovery of VAT for a fee of 30% on the savings (subject to a minimum fee of £1000). The fee will cover services like procurement of the vehicle, delivery from the supplier/auction house, delivery to the port, shipment inspection and approval, and delivery to the shipping agent.

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

A customer can make a 20% saving when purchasing a VAT qualifying vehicle from the UK and permanently exporting it. We can help recover the sales tax if buying cars from the UK. VAT can be claimed for a full refund by the government. By using this service you can reduce the total cost on the price of the vehicle, upon export from the UK. However, there are separate terms and conditions you need to agree to (available upon request or at the time of booking).

THE PROCESS

  • The customer wishing to reclaim VAT on export, must sign our Service Agreement and put us into funds towards the full purchase of the vehicle.
  • VAT Qualifying invoice addressed to EXECUTRAIN SERVICES UK is required. (Units that are VAT qualifying include: ex demonstration cars, units previously owned by a company or hire leasing company, brand new vehicles and commercial vehicles). 
  • In response, an invoice to the end buyer for the net value of the vehicle plus our fee (as calculated above) will be raised by ourselves.
  • We will purchase the vehicle on behalf of the customer (only once full payment has been received from the end buyer) and we will arrange shipment to the customer.

VEHICLE CATEGORIES FOR VAT PURPOSES

There are three categories that used vehicles can be placed in:

1. VAT Qualifying

Upon export of a VAT Qualifying vehicle, we can claim back the VAT (currently 20%) from the purchase price.

2. Margin Vehicles

We cannot claim VAT back on the purchase of a Margin vehicle. 

3. Commercial Vehicles

If a vehicle is identified as commercial, 20% VAT will be added to the purchase price, under the same conditions as VAT Qualifying vehicles. This can be re-claimed, but only if strict guidelines are followed.

EXECUTRAIN SERVICES UK:

1. Must purchase the vehicle and be invoiced directly by the UK VAT registered vendor (Auction House etc)
2. Must be provided with written confirmation certifying that the vehicle is VAT Qualifying
3. Will charge a fee of 30% of the savings (subject to a minimum fee of £1000) for this service
4. Net value invoice must be paid in full immediately
