  1. Hi all im new to this site,

    i just need some advice if anyone know about it please help.

    I brought a new tax free car on the 01 03 2007,

    after a year i was deploying on tour it was the 04 04 2008 when i was deploying even though i was told i would not be going till the end of may i had to go early.

    i had a problem i had no way of getting my car DE-registered and taken back to the UK,
    so i contacted the garage (NAFFI TAX FREE CAR SALES). to see what i could do no at the time i new nothing about how to do all this DE-registration part,

    i was told that they could do it for me and send the veh back to uk etc. which i thought great all i was told is i had to pay the cost to transport the veh back but as they do this every month it was not so much 250 quid i was told.

    so i went on tour and all was good until i got a letter saying there was a German tax bill for me and that the car had been sold for a lot less even though the car was on one of these deals buy back. so i now had a massive bill of over 5500 to pay.

    now im sure that if i own the car for over a year then i don't get taxed can anyone help on this matter please.

  2. You need to talk to VLO and C&I in JHQ. I can get the phone numbers and PM you tomorrow.
