Yes I got a response from the book authors - they didn't update this info from the 1st edition! Great.

"After checking the information we could verify that item 11.2 of the Portuguese Property Guide indicates the period of six months, which was the applicable period according to the law in force when published the 1st edition. Although the item 11 (page 18) of 3rd edition says that “imported goods such as caravans, yachts or other motor vehicles must have been in use in the country of origin for at least 12 months prior to departure”, by discrepancy, this information was not indicated in item 11.2. Thus, the correct period is 12 months."

Hi Peter, thanks so much for your help with this. I wonder in terms of utility bills to show proof of living in the uk, which ones did they request? I'm thinking we could continue to pay some to get up to 12mths. Say council tax and water rates, would 2 items be enough do you think? Cheers

I am not sure where that comes from" things in the Algarve are slower than anywhere else in PT".
I find them very efficient and more likely to speak English.
I thought long and hard about matriculation and decided to sell my car at home and buy a left-hand drive, so much safer.My opinion mind.

The more the better i had four and i had a bank statement for a missing Virgin media

I don't know the nearest Customs office but the Coja says you may be in my area why not plan a day out to visit a local Customs office. I am sure that the local Finacas office may know the nearest.

I am at the market at Barril be Alva next Saturday if you want to meet up, just outside of Coja.

Hi Peter, thank you so much for your help and kind offer to meet up. We hope to be setting off on saturday, so won't arrive until late sunday - but this depends on progress with the house sale. It's difficult to plan any dates at this stage, so removals and storage etc.. all proving a bit tricky.

If you're around that neck of the woods after that let me know. It would be great to have a good chat and learn from your experiences. thanks again

Hello,

We've been trying to import a car but it looks like we may have to pay the tax due to the Alfandega being unhappy with the original matriculation document (we're working on it!). However, in the event that we have to pay the tax does that free us up to sell the vehicle if we need to? I understood that the tax exemption places a restriction on selling the vehicle for five years.

Hi Rubytwo

If you manage to get tax free you have to keep the vehicle for five years or pay part of the tax you save back. If you decide to import and pay the tax then you can sell at any time.

Well it looks like the application for tax exemption on our car and motorhome has been accepted. But another issue has surfaced that I haven't come across in my research for the importation process.
We've been told by three brokers that since the vehicles will have originated in France we wont be able to buy comprehensive insurance for either of the vehicles. They are saying that the best that we can buy is third party insurance with a few extras. If the vehicle is stolen or damaged, potentially we wont be covered.

Does anyone else know about this restriction on insurance post legalisation?

A friend suggested that we wait until we have the new plates and hope that the vehicles will the be treated as any other Portuguese vehicles. The trouble with this option is that we could potentially end up with two very under insured vehicles...which for me is not an option.
