Can anyone steer me in the right direction, I think I am on the right forum. My son is a serving soldier in Germany. Last November he bought a car tax free in the Uk and exported it to Germany by the end of that month as required. He then went on excercise and then on a driving course in the UK. The car remained on camp in Germany. He failed to complete the required BFG paperwork and has now been interviewed by someone from customs and has recieved a bill for 1800 euros. He has been back in the UK since May this year (the car is still off the road in Germany) attached to a different regiment. A big pile of mail has been delivered to him (I haven't seen this yet)with some rather nasty letters from the authorities. The car has only ever been used to drive to Germany and not since. Does anyone know if there is an appeals process, should he have been notified of the risk of not doing the paperwork (he did ensure the car was out of the UK before the end of November), if he coughs up the levy will this mean the car is tax paid and can then be sold in the UK. I will hopefully get sight of the paperwork this weekend and will post my findings. The long and the short of it is he can't afford the levy and the loan. I know, I know, he is a complete kn*b. Cheers in anticipation, Headgash.
