You are of course, correct, I just didn't want to bore people.
VAT is charged on top of the "Registration Tax" for a new vehicle and a Corfu MOT (chuckle chukle) is required for a pre registered vehicle + the Registration Tax.
There may be nothing the EEC can do about it, apart from the fines they impose on Greece, that wasn't my point,
The "Customs" authority charge a Registration Tax, is it just me, or does that sound like a Duty Charge ?
Chris, You can of course take your vehicle out of Greece for six months, and I've heard that you can make arrangements with the Police to take the vehicle off the road for the same period, and officialy, if you have Road Tax, MOT and Insurance cover from the original EEC Country, then you are legal.
I've never been asked to show Ferry Receipts !, but then again, the only time I've been stopped in my UK car, I was asked for my Driving Licence and Registration. my Driving Licence wasn't a problem and I told him that I never carry my registration, the nice Policeman asked me had I been drinking, and I replied that of course I had !
This seemed to please him, and satisfied that I wasn't an Al Kieda terrorist with an AK47 in the boot, he let me go.
Buy Local,,,,, not because I support the local car dealers,
but because the alternative will drive you to drink,
