414 Forms

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I ordered a new car in June, then recieved a posting order in July for early Aug back to the UK.

    I have since picked my new car up and started the BFG process (form 60 sent). As I only have 3 weeks untill I leave Germany I don't think I'll get the whole BFG/De-BFG process completed and my feeling is that I won't recieve my 414 paperwork before I leave.

    I have spoken with the BFG helpline who say that the 414 paperwork can be forwarded to my in the UK. Is this correct? If so doesn't this mean that I'll be driving a car around the UK with no tax disk on it? Is there a time limit as to the time the car can be in the UK before it is registered?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I feel that i may get stung for VAT just because the BFG office and C&I are taking their time...
