it's a better idea to ship to the UK, register and then take to Spain

As you know, residents of Spain are obliged to register their cars on Spanish plates.
Taxes To Be Paid:
# Value Added Tax (IVA) - think it's 16%
payable on cars imported from outside the EU or on cars registered on tourist or tax-free export plates when imported. The basis of the calculation is on the original market price of the vehicle with a reduction for each year of the vehicle's age.
This tax is not payable on cars registered on fully tax paid plates from a community country.

# Special Registration Tax @ 12%
This tax on registration is intended to compensate for the losses in tax income brought about by the reduction in IVA.

# Import Duty @ 10%
In the case of a vehicle registered in a country not belonging to the EU/EES, an import duty is payable when the vehicle is imported to Spain. This duty is also calculated on the original market price, with a reduction according to age.

Intervals For Technical Inspection (ITV) in Spain Are:
a) 5years after first registration (in Spain or abroad)
b) after 5years, it's every 2years until 9years old
c) after 9 years, inspected every year (like the UK mot)


Importing a R.H.D. Car
1) Importation due to change of residency.
2) Normal importation.

If taking residency and want to have a R.H.D. car, as this is an importation due to change of residency, you shouldn't have any problem...as with your new e6

But if you are already a resident in Spain and you buy a RHD car and intend to put it on Spanish plates, you may be able to go through the whole importation process, but the ITV may refuse to test the car.

You should contact the ITV and ask them about these e7's before even thinking about buying

yes...reckon you'll get them through...but as I said....if you register in UK first
+ one will probably have to be done in someone else's name
...otherwise might look a bit suspicious
