• An agreement has been signed in Bonn under which, in recognition of the waiver of vehicle excise duty on German commercial vehicles visiting the United Kingdom, the German authorities have agreed to waive vehicle taxes on British vehicles visiting the Federal Republic. Both passenger and goods vehicles will benefit from this new arrangement.
The exemption will apply for 14 days from the date of importation of the vehicle, the dates of importation and exportation each counting as one day. This period may be extended in the event of a breakdown or of other special circumstances, or when the journey is made in connection with a fair, exhibition or similar event.
