I have been forced to pay tax on a car I bought tax free 9 months ago due to an unexpected posting away from BFG. (don't even start me on how unfair the system is!) I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience of how long the German customs people take to generate the tax bill? I sent off my form 38 two weeks ago and I'm still waiting. The car's in the UK, the paperworks stuck in a jam in Germany and I'm in BATUS. Just want the damn thing sorted out.
