I left the Army 31st May 2011, took my tax free car back to UK around the 14th June 2011. I had all the correct BFG paperwork,registered it on the day of my arrival. By which point it was over 6 months old from time of registration on Pink log book and had over 14,000 miles on the clock. ... Due to being made redundant I had to sell the car October 2011. I received a VAT demand today from HMRC for unpaid VAT on the car. Having read the HMRC rules (Which make no reference to BFG regulations, Forces etc) My feelings are since I registered the car in the UK after my discharge ( IN EFFECT A CIVVIE and no longer part of BFG regs) Then as long as the car is over 6 months old or has more than 6,000km on the clock then I am not liable to pay the VAT if I disposed of the car. Anyone have a clue how to sort this little mess out?
