Luxury Tax

If you bought a vehicle from The Netherlands, Dutch fiscal laws state what needs to happen if you want to export the car out of The Netherlands. Luxury Tax is placed on certain cars. Criteria for Luxury Tax are the type of vehicle, the NL registration date and the amount of CO2 emission. Luxury Tax is automatically deducted from the hammer price for foreign EU buyers. For Non EU buyers it is not possible to refund Luxury Tax. The amount of Luxury Tax is specified on the invoice and needs to be paid by the customer. Non EU buyers need an Ex. 1 document for crossing the EU border and this document will be provided by BCA.
