This one looks to be priced much more sensibly.

Does look decent but think id rather find another £1k for 20k less on clock viewtopic.php?f=41&t=119658
Nice car but not a fan of the colour...

It is a bit cheap but I am moving to the UK and won't have a garage and I don't want to leave it on a busy road, option 2 was to keep it for a year in the UK and then sell it as the VAT wouldn't apply.

I wouldn't be selling it to the UK unless I kept it stored for a year and re-registered it then no import duty, I wonder what I could get for it then?

Yes that one does look cheap, but will there be any tax to pay?

Sorry, I should have written a better explanation, I live in Jersey and I am selling the car in Jersey. I was curious to see what you think of the price.

So if someone in the UK bought it, then brought it back here and stored it for a year, they wouldn’t have to pay tax? If so, that’s an easy £5k made over a 12 month period.

Bit of a gamble I'd have thought. If its that easy, everyone would be doing it............. :?

Its not worth it for UK residents, you would have to have owned the car for at least six months prior to import to the UK, to avoid paying the VAT at 20%. Its only workable for the OP, by retaining ownership for twelve months, after moving to the mainland.

VAT at 20% so cheap even with that added on? Is that duty on top of that too?

No MOT on Jersey. Its an island five miles wide x nine miles long. Think about the salt.......... pervades everything. Although the roads are not salted. As previously said, if its that cheap, everyone would be doing it. :?

Maybe cars aren't usually priced this cheap? From my brief research you're just paying 20% tax on top of the asking price, so op has it priced overly cheap i'd say.

Post 6 of this thread, that's the only other time I've read the phrase "salt pervades " before :lol:
