    Hi i have posted an email below which some of you my find useful it was my own mh that is being re-resisted



    Please find below a formal quote for the re-registration of your motor home. We are at the ITV station daily, so within reason can see you any time

    Regards

    We put you on the right side of the road

    Dear Joanne



    Many thanks for your enquiry regarding the re-registration of your CI Riviera Motor home, first registered in 2002



    After re-registering more than 1000 vehicles over the last 5+ years I can take care of the whole process for you thoroughly and professionally


    Please find below a summary of the process and costs involved all of which I take care of for you

    In order to be legally imported into Spain, your car needs to be inspected by a matriculation engineer to confirm that it matches the specification on the logbook. (This is a one-off process).


    It then has an import ITV (MOT) inspection. The vehicle is then re-tested every 2 years. (For vehicles over 10 years old, the testing is undertaken annually)


    The necessary documents are presented to the authorities in Alicante that issue all of the relevant Spanish paperwork and your legal fees are paid. This is undertaken via my Gestor (lawyer) who specialises in this type of work in order to obtain maximum efficiency and accuracy.


    Once the paperwork is back after about 7 days, I obtain your Spanish number plates and hand everything over to you at your home or place of work


    The fee for all of the above is €670 including IVA (VAT).


    In addition you will be liable for road tax of €30 approx (balance of 2012),for which you get an official receipt with the exact amount paid.


    Registration tax is due on all vehicles coming into Spain. There is a dispensation period of 60 days given from application of FIRST Padron or Residencia, which I understand you are outside of.


    As the CO2 emissions will be greater than 200 g/Km, the registration tax on your vehicle would be at14.75% of its market value less 30%, so for example if the vehicle was valued at €8000, this would be reduced to €5600 X 14.75% which is €826


    Receipts are issued by the Spanish authorities for all taxes paid. This way, you can be sure that you have paid the correct amount and it has not been marked up

    I understand that the headlights are already suitable for Continental driving


    Please note that if the vehicle has 2 rear fog lights, no problem; if one only, this needs to be on the left hand side. We normally charge 20 euros for addressing this. The reversing light can remain where it is


    Note that the tyres must be identical on the same axle (though all 4 need not be the same). The spare wheel is not checked as part of the inspection


    Normally inspections are undertaken at the ITV station at Redovan, just outside of Orihuela city, Alicante province, as it is the only station that I am aware of where both inspections can be undertaken one after the other, as opposed to two trips on different days. Also as I have been using this station for many years and am well known, any niggles tend to be smoothly dealt with.


    At this stage, you will need to show certificates of approval for both the gas and electric installations. I can arrange for a local company to inspect and provide the certificates. This firm charges 70 euros per inspection/ certificate. i.e. 140 euros for the pair



    You will be given a document from the ITV that explains to any interested parties (such as the police) that you vehicle is being imported. This will tide you over until I deliver your papers and plates


    This is the only time that you and the vehicle are needed and should take about 2 hours in total



    Documents required for re-registration

    Registration document of the vehicle

    Copy passport

    Padron

    Photocopy of NIE certificate (or Certificate of Residence)

    Valuation



    Summary of Costs (Euros)

    670Fee for full matriculation process

    30 Road tax (approx, balance of 2012)

    140 Gas and electric inspection and certification


    €840 total


    + Registration tax (a.k.a emissions or import tax)


    I cannot deny that this is a large sum of money; however the cost of vehicles in Spain is much higher than in the UK, so even paying the taxes it almost always works out cheaper than buying one here


    Please note that as I have to start paying out immediately on your behalf that some cash (or a combination of cash and cheque) would be required on the day, with the balance upon completion though I ask you to ensure that you are comfortable with the process in hand before actually parting with it! It is preferable to pay the taxes by bank transfer or card directly to my lawyer who pays it on our behalf


    I look forward to hearing from you, meanwhile more information can be found on our website which includes the articles that I have written as a regular feature writer for the Costa Blanca News and associated papers on this subject under the banner “Mediterranean Motoring”



    Kind regards


    Graham Shelton

    I am not sure about MHs in Spain being expensive. I looked through a Spanish MH magazine this year which had an article on various PVCs and there were several under €40K and the cheapest was about €37K. They looked reasonable specs too. Of course these prices may not have included VAT in which case the prices were about UK levels, but not more.

    Where did you bring the vehicle from? Not sure why anyone should pay import tax within the EU.
