Well unless I'm missing something here, why would you need to pay tax on it? If I have an English car and import it into Spain then I just pay the administration charge to import it. There is no duty or tax to pay on it as long as you have owned the car for more than 6 months, which of course you have.

hi , the problem is that tax in spain (MAINLAND) is 16% in g.c its 6% so to stop folk in the mainland going to g.c buying a car alot cheaper then bringing it back to here you have to pay import tax.
thats why i have to pay import tax, untill i have payed it i cant sell the car.
