    Re-importing a car

    Has anybody imported a car into the uk that was originally registered in the UK and was previously exported to the EU?
    Trying to find out tax/VAT liability and the GOV.uk website is a nightmare!

    Took the tin top to Australia a while ago, long story don't ask, registered it out there drove it for 3 1/2 years around Brisbane and the surroundings and then brought it all the way back again. Just stuck the original number plates back on before it went in the container, not a word said when I collected it no fees (except the removal firm) and drove it home.
