Posted out of BFG but not to the UK?

You may be able to import and register your tax free vehicle without further tax or duty liability. However, it is vital that you engage with local customs in your new location, to establish what you and your family are entitled to.

For example, dependants are not entitled to tax free benefits in SHAPE (Belgium) or in Cyprus.

If your dependants have tax free vehicles that have less than 12 months BFG registration and are not entitled to tax free benefits in your new location, tax will have to be paid to German customs in order to export the vehicle.

You should contact your receiving unit promptly to establish your personal tax free allowances.
