Can you sell your new tax free vehicle in the UK after posting back / demob and following 6 months of ownership and UK registration without having to repay the Tax? Bfg Regs state you must retain the vehicle for 12 months on return however previous threads, posters and even Bfg Car dealers state that tax authorities require you only to retain the vehicle for 6 months. The year requirement is a BFG imposed restriction. If you break it you and your family will receive a 5 year ban on future BFG motoring privileges. As I like so many others have left the Army this does not impact me at all. I have tried calling the Tax authorities/help lines etc but no one has a clue, there is a specialist department at Dover but they never answer their lines. We are 11 months one week into ownership of our dreaded S-max. We started shopping around for a replacement and before we knew it had signed on the dotted line for a replacement assuming the process would take weeks. Unfortunately these people are the Easyjet of the Car sales world, everything revolves around shifting cars quickly and insist on completing the process by the end of the week (new Month etc). On the one hand I could lose my deposit, on the other £3500 in repaid tax! Help Has anyone else successfully sold a Tax free vehicle after 6+months of ownership without penalty? As the Army/BFG shrinks this must be a relatively common issue.
