  1. Hi,
    Was just wondering if anybody knows how long before you actually move to Germany you can buy a tax free car if you've recieved your assignment order? I'm posted to Germany as of last week but still in the UK on attachment with my family until September so was just wondering when I can get hold of a tax free motor.
  2. i believe you can order it at any time but can't take delivery till September.
  3. I looked at 'google' and there is some stuff there
  4. Speak to the car dealer your buying your car from, they generally know.
  5. It may have changed but I think it used to be that you had 30 days to get it out of the country or you became liable to pay the tax back. Incidentally this has nothing to do with the fcat that you are posted to Germany or BFG regulations it is UK customs/tax law so your best place for a DS answer is Customs.
