Default Dutch specific help for an expat with a 6N

Hi,

I asked this in English in the Dutch section so I'm not sure I've followed correct forum protocol so will ask here also.

I moved to Holland from the UK two years ago and brought the car with me at the same time. Since then it's been to RDW about 4 times but sat on the drive the rest of the time. I've also paid a load of tax in that time too

To summarise what I've done so far:
- applied for and approved for the import tax exemption;
- registered with the local council and am paying quarterly tax;
- had the car inspected at RDW.

Next steps (as far as I'm aware):
- Dutch registration including number plates;
- APK.

The problem now is I'm not sure how to get the Dutch plates...

Essentially I'm looking for a garage I can drop it off at so they can complete the rest of the registration. I'm so sick of the entire process that I want to drop it off somewhere and not see it again until it's on the road.

Can anybody recommend me somewhere to do this?
Alternatively if you could advise me of my next steps.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Where in Holland are you located?
Did the car succeed the RDW-inspection?
Then you should get registration-confirmation through RDW-mail (creditcardsize registration-pass)
Once you have this little card, your card has a plate-combination that you can get stamped into platjes at most carpart-dealers/-shops.
After that, drop it off at An APK-garage (unless you ordered the inspection @RDW including APK.

Hi mate,

Thanks for your reply. I'm in Utrecht.

Yes it did pass the RDW. I received the paper printout following the inspection and if I understood properly (the lady's English wasn't great) I need to send it somewhere. I'm also not sure if anything else needs to be sent with it.

One other thing I've just remembered, I provided the original UK registration documents to RDW so I no longer have those.

So once I send these docs off I can receive the little card? Sounds easy enough. Any idea where these should go?

Thanks again!

Following the instructions on the RDW site for importing a car form an EU country. After the RDW inspection you have to declare BPM. Since you moved from UK the car could be seen as part of your belowings that you move setting it free from BPM. To clear up everything around the BPM make a phone call to the belastingdienst. After confirmation from both RDW and the belastingdienst you will receive the earlier mentioned creditcardsize registration pass. Take this pass and all other papers that came with the card to a shop that is allowed to make numberplates. Here is a list with shops allowed to do that (https://www.rdw.nl/-/media/rdw/rdw/...abrikanten.pdf). Also make sure from the moment you get your registration card that the card has a valid APK and WA insurance. Getting fines for not having those are quite high. I hope this clears things up and good luck

I also think you might have missed the tax-office-step for BPM?

Don't send your papers anywhere. They're your only proof the car is yours right now...

How long ago was the RDW-inspection?

Hi, I did mention this earlier however I wasn't very clear.

I do already have the BPM import exemption on a document titled "vergunning vrijstelling BPM bij verhuizing".

I should also reiterate I have been paying €74 each quarter to belastingdienst.

So it's weird that I have the RDW approval and BPM approval but no credit card size registration pass yet...

I did have all my BPM documentation with me at the RDW office however they weren't interested in it at all.

I do have the "Vergunning vrijstelling BPM bij verhuizing" confirmation if that's what you're referring to.

I had no choice, the RDW office took them off me as part of the inspection.

Yes, good point. It was a couple months back now so I'll likely need another one. I was so frustrated with the whole process I have up for a little while. I'm determined to finalise it this time though.

Are you registered at the right address in the civil administration? If you checked RDW & BPM, ánd they asked you to pay roadtax, I'd think there is already a 'kenteken'... Could you have missed the card in the mail?

Doesn't it say a plate-combination at your roadtax-referral?

I doubt this is the case as my road tax bills are being sent to this address.

I think what I might do is send both the Berekening BPM and a copy of the RDW inspection certificate to Belastingdienst again. I had already sent the Berekening BPM but not the RDW so perhaps that's where the issue is.

Who issues the credit card size registration pass? Is this Belastingdienst? I did expect RDW to send the inspection doc to them though...

We may be referring to two different documents here. The one I received from RDW is titled "Formulier tbv BPM aangifte".

So it's starting to look more and more like I need to send this to Belastingdienst along with this form (again):

https://download.belastingdienst.nl...141b34fol. pdf

I will also send a copy of the latest road tax invoice to ensure they dont register it twice.

The RDW issues the registration card. I really recommend you to call or email the belastingdienst in your case so they can look it up in there system. Incase you send any documents keep coppies!

Send copies, keep the originals!

But if they invoice you for roadtax, this implies a registration has been issued. Please check the invoice from the Belastingdienst for roadtax, to which registration they are billing you.
In that case, RDW should have sent you a registration-card, with which you can have plates stamped... If they didn't, of you didn't receive it, call and ask for a new one.

I will explain how that came about.

The car was sitting in the driveway for about 6 months before I ever did anything. It was on UK plates at the time so I received a letter from Belastingdienst telling me road tax is payable if it’s driven here.

I therefore sent back the required forms and have been paying tax since.

Then a couple months later I had the RDW inspection.

So it was all kind of the wrong way around which has caused a lot of the confusion.
