Paperwork Required for Importing Machinery

At Eamonn Tinney Agri Sales, we save you the hassle of importing machinery by sourcing the plant your require, ensuring that it is fit for purpose and carrying out refurbishments where neccessary. Most importantly, we handle the paperwork, including VRT and VAT, and the delivery of the machinery.

For international and worldwide deliveries, we use Daytona Heavy Haulage and for local deliveries throughout the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, we use our own tranportation.

Import Duties and Taxes

The import duty rate for importing machinery into Ireland is charged at a rate of 2.2%, while the import VAT rate is at the standard rate of 23%. For more information, see our page on importing machinery.

Registering the Vehicle in Ireland

Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT)

Commercial and Agricultural Vehicles

As of May 2011, vehicle registration tax for Category C in Ireland, which includes commercial and agricultural vehicles is €200. This category also includes vehicles which are more than 30 years old at the time of registration.

Certificate of Conformity (CoC)

All new vehicles, in categories M (passenger), N (commercial), L and T (Tractors), now require national type approval or European Community Whole Vechicle Approval to be registered in Ireland. 

Individuals who purchase a 'new' vehicle from one of the above categories, outside of Ireland (including Northern Ireland) must provide a Certificate of Conformity to the NCTS centre when registering the vehicle in Ireland. This approval must be obtained from the manufacturer or dealer at the time of purchase. If the vehicle does not have this form of approval, it must be presented to the NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland) for certification before registration of the vehicle can take place in this state.
