Import car from Japan to Bulgaria

Postby kuzco » Thu Apr 20, 2017 6:37 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out my costs for importing a car from Japan to Varna, BG.

My dealer informed me I need to pay:
- 30% import tax
- 20% VAT

But my research shows that the Import Tax is 10% and not 30%.

Link to calculation:

Official document from "customs.bg"
http://www.customs.bg/document/10157 ... page 294, CN code 8703 24 90

Another article regarding this:

Who is right here??

Thanks!

Japanese cars are RHD as far as I recall - there was some talk of banning their importation, so you might want to check that.

Seems a lot of effort to go through - why not sell the car in Japan and buy a new one in BG?

Just a thought, but this could simply be a language thing. In Bulgaria 'tax' generally means 'cost' as opposed to the more precise British meaning of 'tax', therefore I THINK your agent could be saying that the COST of importing the car would be 30%, which would be made up of 20% plus 10%.
As I said, just a thought.

got to be a cheaper option to buy in BG..save all those import/transport costs..and you can buy whatever model you like here.

They will ship to Sofia and Burgas. The wife used Tradecarview.com as her search site when she brought one into the UK No rust and in pristine condition and still cheap with all taxes and MOT'd by port agent.
