|Export Country||Country of Origin*||Customs Duty Rate||VAT Rate|
|UK||Third Country (e.g. USA or Japan)||10%||23%|
|UK||EU (e.g. Germany or France)||10%||23%|
The country of origin for a vehicle origin typically means where the vehicle was manufactured not where you are importing the vehicle from.
Therefore in most cases vehicles that have been manufactured in the UK are subject to 0% customs duty and vehicles manufactured outside with UK (e.g. Germany, USA) and imported from UK to Ireland are subject to 10% customs duty.
