VAT QUALIFYING VEHICLES

A UK VAT registered company can claim UK VAT back from the purchase price, (currently 20%)from a VAT Qualifying vehicle, as long as it is purchased by a VAT registered company directly from the seller, advertising it as VAT Qualifying

UK Car Exports have engaged a VAT registered company in the UK to work exclusively for UK Car Exports customers, to act on your behalf, in the purchase, and subsequent sale for export (without VAT) to you. This company is “Hi Spec Leasing Ltd”. (HSL)

HSL can assist you with these purchases:

But only if strict guidelines are followed

  1. HSL must acquire the vehicle on your behalf and be invoiced directly from the UK VAT registered vendor. You should satisfy yourself with the Vendor, the Vehicle and the Price, but notify HSL prior to purchase, so that the Vendor Invoice can be made out to HSL.
  2. HSL must be have confirmation from the vendor that the vehicle is VAT Qualifying.
  3. HSL will charge a handling fee of 2% of the gross vehicle price for full payment with chassis for this service. Option 1
  4. HSL will charge a handling fee of 3% of the gross vehicle price for 50/50 payment for this service. Option 2
  5. HSL will invoice you a “Net” value price with shipping and collection as soon as it receives the Vendor’s Invoice.
  6. The Hi Spec Net value Purchase Invoice price must be paid in full immediately. Option 1
  7. Option 2 – 50% Net value from the Purchase Invoice must be paid in immediately, the second 50% must be paid once the (OBL) original bill of lading is sent to you for.
