Recently I traded my car for one with Dutch registration. First it was necessary to have my car with a Dutch registration for the stand to accept it in return.
For the same be done without paying the duty and BTW have to follow the following steps:
1) has to be resident in the Netherlands there are more than six months and less than a year. This requires a role of the camera that says how long this ä in Holland and since when; You can keep your car with EU licence plate in the Netherlands for 6 months.
2) you must have a copy of the invoice of the car ;
3) you need a copy of proof of address such as a copy of the contract of rent of the house;
4) you need a copy of proof of finances that says we are no longer registered with address in the home Country.
5) you need a copy of vehicle registration;
6) is required copies of ID or passport.
After all this paperwork is necessary to go to this link and print this document, unfortunately is in dutch, fill it and send it along with all documents to the address that is in that document.
The response will be within 3-4 weeks by mail.
Then you have to move the car to a downtown area where the RDW will inspect the car, bring the original documents and identification of the car, and will have to pay around € 130. After the car to be inspected in the same place just go to the BPM counter tax and deliver the letter they received. If everything is ok, a week will receive a letter with new documents and new Dutch registration.
By now they can definitely make a new registration. Unfortunately, receive in 3-4 weeks, the road tax to pay.
Right now have to keep the car in your possession for 12 months. If you try to rent, sell or pass to someone else receive the BPM to pay plus a possible fine.
To see how much road tax will pay can go to this link. Cars with more than 25 years old and that are really low pollution do not pay tax.
- petrol: under 110 grams of CO2 per kilometer
- Diesel: under 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer
To see how much they paid insurance can go to this link.
Unfortunally for the low co2 cars this is only till 1 of January of 2014. After that you will not pay till 1 of January of 2015 if your car is below 50 co2 . See this LINK.
In the Netherlands and according to the information from a reader, it is possible to have a car with foreign registration in Holland for 6 months, but a reader informed me that if you registered as a resident in some City hall that it can only be legally for 14 days but you can ask for an extension .
The best will be to come to the Netherlands without the car and after six months bring it in or if you live in a small place make like me just ride with it, I never saw a cop.
I hope it was useful until the next.
