Requirements for a duty free import of classic cars

Cars which are older than 30 years and which are in their original condition can be imported duty free. In Germany there will be only 7% import turnover tax for classic cars.

This is one big advantage in comparison to the Netherlands. There you have to pay 9 % for import turnover tax. Replicas and Hot Rods can't be imported with reduced costs.

If a classic car complies with the requirements for a duty free classic car import, will be decided by the european customs authorities.

Meaning - Original condition of a classic car

  • There have been no essential changes made on the chassis frame, steering or gearing mechanism, brakes, suspension system or motor.
  • Reconditioning or rebuilding are allowed.
  • Modernized or converted vehicles are excluded though.
  • The decision is always up to the customs authority in charge.
