Cars registered in The Netherlands are subject to the BPM tax (Dutch luxury tax). If a Dutch car is sold to a customer in the Netherlands, the price applied includes the BPM. The BPM is refunded If a Dutch car is to be exported outside of the Netherlands, and the customer presents proof of registration in another country within six weeks from the date of the export.
Cars with prior registration to a private person are subject to the "Marge" ruling, which means the VAT cannot be deducted, and the car must be sold with the European VAT paid.
If a car is registered to companies with a VAT number, that car can be sold without VAT. If a car with deductible VAT is sold to a private person, the VAT must be paid in the country of destination. If a car with deductible VAT is sold to a company with a VAT number outside the Netherlands, the invoice will be made excluding VAT. The VAT status of cars we offer is described in the advertisement.
Starting from the D8 GTO MY2012, all Donkervoort cars benefit from European small series homologation. These Donkervoorts are delivered with a certificate of conformity that is recognized in all European Union member countries and also in several other countries outside the EU. These cars do not need to be homologated in the country of destination and the registration is therefore very straightforward.
Any Donkervoort cars built before the Donkervoort D8 GTO, or with production before 2012 do not benefit from the European small series homologation. These cars need to receive individual homologation in the country of destination. Donkervoort Automobielen and its local partners can provide help for the individual homologation of the car.
