Are there taxes, duties or VAT?

We have a great set up between Australia and the UK and many people are eligible for duty and VAT exemption,meaning you pay NO taxes on import.

In general if you meet below criteria, you will be successful in gaining a tax exemption:

• That you have lived outside the UK for at least 12 months.
• That you have possessed and used the vehicle outside the UK for at least 6 months.
• That you are moving to the UK to live for at least 6 months in the following 12 months.
• That the vehicle arrives no more than 6 months after you arrive.
• That you do not sell the car for at least 12 months after UK customs clearance.

If you are unsure if you meet the above criteria then please contact us and we can provide you with more information on the local taxes.

Our experienced team will take care of everything. We will even guide you through the collection of all documentation requirements.

Shipping to the UK from Australia can be a profitable exercise!

Both Australia and New Zealand have a treasure trove of vintage vehicles that are worth a lot more over in the UK than they are here to our local markets. We’ve had clients make thousands of pounds on imports over the years through buying, importing, and selling vehicles that are worth a pretty penny over in the UK.

Willship is more than happy to act as the intermediary party on your behalf to work with the seller, organize payments and so on to ensure the process is smooth and easy.

The UK also has great incentives to import classic cars of historical interest. That means, if you buy a classic car, you could import the vehicle without needing to pay any import duty, and with a reduced VAT rate of only 5% – making it potentially very lucrative!
