Default Should we take our car?

Hi,

What's the score with taking a car when you go to Oz? Does it all come down to tax and the age of the car?

Is there are risk you could pay tax on anything you take with you?

Any comments would be appreciated....

Thanks!

Generally not a great idea unless the car is very special.

Think about:
- any modifications that will be needed
- parts availability in Australia
- how easily will you be able to get it serviced
- what will the resale value be in Australia

You need to get in touch with customs to find out what taxes if any
you'll have to pay -

Search through the previous posts on this site. There is loads of info on this subject in the archives.

The general consensus is that 95% of the time it is NOT worth exporting a car from UK to Austrlia. (Howard will tax you for even thinking about it).
