Exporting & Buying from Abroad

We export to many countries around the world and a large percentage of our export buyers bid on the telephone or bid online.

Reclaim VAT on an Exported Vehicle

When the vehicle / item is shipped to its destination port within three months of purchase, the original MMA invoice & the Bill of Lading (shipping document) should be stamped by the shipping company or customs.

Return the following documents within three months from the shipping date and we'll refund your VAT:

  • Original MMA invoice stamped by shipping company or customs
  • The original shipping document with the vehicle registration number stated
  • All EC buyers must produce their VAT number

Post to:

Merthyr Motor Auctions
Redbarrel House

We then issue a new invoice showing no VAT and a cheque for the VAT will be refunded.
