The UK's #HMRC has changed the rules regarding #VAT payment on vehicles entering the #UK from April 14, 2013.
HMRC calls the new system: Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA). It is intended to improve the process for notifying HMRC and paying the required VAT. This is another bureaucratic nightmare if you take a vehicle into UK. You have to not only inform HMRC within 14 days but pay VAT, if it is required during that time period.
The best way to handle NOVA is to do it yourself online or assign a tax advisor or freight forwarding agent to handle on your behalf.
