    Hello again,

    Previously you helped me with information about the documents I would need to register a vehicle purchased in Turkey. I have all the recommended documents but I am unsure as to how to go about this process. I know that you do not deal with vehicles registered outside of the EU, so could you possible help me answer these questions?
    1. Once I have my residence permit how long do I have until I have to register the car in Bulgaria?
    2. Do I need to pay the VAT costs of around 32% of the vehicle value for import if I am to obtain “blue plates?”
    3. Could you advise as to the process for importing and registering a car from outside of the EU in Bulgaria?
    4. If I set up a Bulgarian company and register the vehicle as an asset of the company, do I still need to pay VAT for the import?
    Thank you so much in advance for your help again!
    Sam

      Hello, Sam!
      1. 6 months.
      2. You can apply for a duty-free and VAT-free import at the Customs Office if you were owner of this car longer then 6 months before you imported it in EU.
      3. You need to have customs document. You have to show also a document for the Euro norm of the vehicle. You do techno-test, then you go to Automotive Administration and last step is going to KAT for registration.
      4. This will be a wrong move in your case, because you can apply for duty and VAT-free import.

    Hello again,

    Previously I enquired whether or not it would be possible to import my vehicle from Turkey to which you were very helpful. I am now in Sofia and am about to obtain my residency permit.

    I am aware that your company offers services for cars imported from Europe. However do you also offer a service for cars imported from outside Europe?

    If not, are you aware of any companies or individuals in Sofia that might be able to help with the process? This may help others who are in my situation.

    Best regards (and thanks again for all of the help!)

      Hello, Sam! Currently I do not offer a service for registering cars with initial registration in a country outside of EU. I cannot recommend you anybody who does this.

    Hi. I have a few questions. We are going to Germany soon. We would prefer to buy a vehicle. US citizen, Intl drivers license. Trying to figure out the advantages of registering it in Bulgaria.
    1. Can we buy, register and insure a vehicle in Germany without temporary residency?
    2. Do you have any idea what the cost difference would be if we bought, registered and insured (full coverage) in Germany versus Bulgaria?
    3. If we buy it in Germany or elsewhere can we drive it to Bulgaria or must we transport it? How would we get temporary insurance to drive it?
    4. Assuming we will register in Bulgaria, to make this process much easier, should we buy the vehicle in Bulgaria?
    Thank you

      Hi! 1. No, you cannot.; 2. In Germany is much more expensive. In BG total cost per year for owning a car is around 500-600bgn. In Germany is 1000Euro on average for a decent car.; 3. Yes, if you buy the car in Germany you can get temporary plates and drive it across Europe. Of course you can also pay to a transport company like mines who will transport the car to your door.; 4. No, you don’t have to. You can buy a car from Germany, transport it to Bulgaria and register it here. Absolutely no problem.
      You are welcome!

      Hi, Angelo! If you are asking for full Casco insurance, yes, all companies offer coverage for EU. For UK – I need to check.

    Hello. Thank you for your site, its so helpful!

    I found a car in Germany. The dealer offers VAT deductible. Since I’ll be registering it to an EU company that I will form in BG can I get the VAT discounted?

    Thanks!

      Hi! Thank you! This car is not eligible for VAT purposes. The car has to have 7 seats or be the N1 category.

        Hi, so does any 7 seat car, like land rover discovery, get VAT off from Germany?

          Hi! Your question is not stated right. If you have a VAT registered company in BG and want to buy a car VAT-free, then you have to buy a 7 seater.
