I am onsome flaky internet in switzerland and a car is onoffer and delivery can be included BUT this means I will not be with the car when the present Swiss owner arrrives with itt in the UK.

Can I declare NOVA a few days after th car arrives in the UK or does it need to be declared at HMRC at the port ass it arrves by the Swiss driver given he will not be the owner tryiing to register it.

Don't worry- you have 14 days from when it arrives here to get the form sent off, or within 14 days of when the person who temporarily imported it changed their mind and decided to keep it here permanently...which would give you more time to NOVA it...

As said you don't need to declare NOVA at time of import.


Won't there be import duty to pay on a Swiss import?

If you can it's best to get a receipt for the purchase, the smaller the purchase price the less duty you pay.

If you don't have a receipt or can't prove the purchase price then HMRC decide on the vehicles value and charge import duty based on that.
