So, I bought my Velar in the UK to Spanish spec and imported it to Spain. I may do this again with Stratstone....my question to all you knowledgeable people here: why are cars in Spain so much more expensive than in the UK and elsewhere? Tax?
The rate of VAT is similar so it’s not that. Now that the UK isn’t in the EU would you have to pay Spanish tax on the imported car - Taxes
The following taxes and duty must be paid when importing a vehicle into Spain:
VAT (IVA) at 16 per cent on cars imported from outside the EU or on a tax-free car (on which VAT hasn’t previously been paid) imported from an EU country;
the registration tax depends on the CO2 emissions, and most likely you are required to pay 12 percent. The table below will give you more information.
