Dear Andy - I am a diplomat serving in Stockholm, Sweden. I am interested in buying a Volkswagen Amarok RHD which is not available in Sweden. Kindly advise on the neccessary tax issues that may apply to me.

Dear Jacobus - Firstly, from a VAT point of view, in the UK there are certain exemptions for Diplomats, see Notice VATNMT7300. However, if you are exporting it to Sweden you will need to take advice from the VAT office in Sweden. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/vatnmtmanual/vatnmt7300.htm
