When Importing your car from UK To Ireland 
You can claim a VAT relief if you are transferring your residence to Ireland from the UK and you were using the vehicle for more than 6 months in the UK before you moved to Ireland. 
VAT is charged at the rate of 23%. 
VRT and registration 
You have to register your vehicle in Ireland within 30 days of bringing it into the country, you have to pay Vehicle Registration Tax unless the vehicle is exempt, for example if given a TOR Reference Number, with your furniture removal customs declaration. 
You register the vehicle at a National Car Test (NCT) centre. You have to book an appointment online or by phoning 01-4135975. Before taking your vehicle for registration you must register the certificate of conformity with Revenue. 
When you go to register you should have the following documents: 
A completed Vehicle Purchase Details VRTVPD2 form if it is a vehicle for private (non- commercial) use 
The vehicle logbook (also called a V5C) 
A certificate of conformity (for new vehicles) 
An invoice with the date of purchase clearly shown 
Proof of your name and address 
Proof of your identity 
Proof of your PPS number 
An exemption certificate issued by Revenue if you are claiming an exemption from VRT 
It is important the mention to your furniture remover, at the outset, that you intend to bring your car to Ireland, so that the process of customs clearance can be started early.
