Vehicle Registration Costs for Imported Cars

Post by Nigel Bright » Thu 17 Jan 2019 14:21

Just checked the costs for registering a Belgian C4 Picasso 1650cc in the PO on the Service-Public website https://www.service-public.fr/particuli ... its/R39696 and the cost of the carte grise would be over 11,000 euros. :( :(
Regional Tax 3,740 and Additional Tax for High-power cars (cars over 38HP?????) of 8,000.00 euros.
I'm hoping the website is not working correctly. Anyone experienced errors when using the website??

I think you can be satisfied that it is very badly wrong (even apart from doing quotes in “Rs” - is that rupees, or rands, or whatever?).

I've no experience of having done this, but out of curiosity I thought I'd see if your costs were at all likely.

It appears they might be right - if the car you're bringing in is new.

This might be helpful to you:

If you are going to give the OP very bad news, it’s is well to get it right within a few orders of magnitude. The car in question has a fiscal horsepower of 6: that means an entry charge of just over €300. Not €11,000. The additional tax for high-powered cars doesn’t apply. And so on.

Apologies for alarming the natives. In the end I visited the Prefecture's office and was assisted by a very helpful young man. Actual cost 270 euros. 🤗🤗
