I would like to know how thorough the car inspection is in Denmark, and what is the tax rate on a classic car? Or is it the same on all cars?
Well Denmark is knowen to have a very high car tax( if not the highest in the world ) So here you pay for 3 cars but only get 1... new ones taht is.
In the past 4-5 years the law has been changed so you can import a classic car ( older than 35 years ) and get a tax discount. the tax differ from every car and is depending what that exact car cost from new in the year it came.
I payed DKK 17.200,- ( USD 3.580,- ) in car tax. Regarding the inspection - yes they are very strict and go thru the car inch by inch.......
Then there is the import tax :-((((((((((
If the car is les than 30 years old it is ( invoiceprice + shipping + insurance x 10% import tax X 25% special DK tax ) so if you buy a car ans ship it and that total is $ 10.000,- you can ad another 1.000,- and then again 2.750,- = 13.750,- and then comes the cartax..
if the car is older than 30 years it is only 5% = 10.500,-
YES I know it sounds insane but it has allways been that way so we have learned to live with it.....
