How to export a car through Kvdcars

Many cars sold on kvdcars.com can be exported, but not all. In the car’s advertisement, under Car facts and then Other information, you can find information on whether the specific car you are looking at is possible to export. You can also search for all cars that can be exported in the auction list by selecting “More filters” and then “Can export”.

Deregistration and transport and temporary registration

In order to export a car that has been bought through us, the car must not be registered in Sweden when purchased. Instead, existing registration plates need to be removed, the car needs to be deregistered in Sweden and transport needs to be booked for collection at its location. The easiest way for you as the buyer is to have a transport company collect the car and transport it to the desired country. Kvdcars would be happy to refer you to one of our partners for this. If you choose a transport company with a forwarding agent warranty, you pay a maximum of SEK 1,595 for our administrative work with the export. If you choose a transport company without a forwarding agent warranty, the maximum cost for our administrative work is SEK 2,395. Costs for declaration and customs duty are not included in our export service and are arranged by the buyer.

If you want to personally collect a car and transport it to another country, a temporary registration for the car needs to be arranged and administrative work is required. This option is only possible for cars that have passed inspection and have at least two months until the next inspection period. If you prefer this option, you need to contact us and provide information so that we can apply for a temporary registration for the car. After application, it takes a few weeks before this registration is complete, and only then can you come and collect your car. Depending on what car you want to export from Sweden, which country you are bringing the car to, and whether you are making the purchase as a private individual or company (with or without a valid VAT number), prices for our administrative work will differ. However, the maximum sum payable for temporary registration is SEK 5,595.

Deposit and deductible VAT

In cases where the buyer chooses not to collect the car using a transport company and utilise a forwarding agent warranty, a deposit sometimes needs to be obtained in conjunction with an export. This is then repaid once we have received evidence that the purchased car has left the country.

Whether or not a deposit is paid depends on which country the car is being transported to and whether the buyer is a private individual or a company with or without a valid EU VAT number. The issue of whether or not a company has a valid VAT number also affects the possibility of not paying VAT on the car upon purchase.

The following rules apply to export out of Sweden:

  • If the car is exported from Sweden to another EU country and a company with a valid VAT number is the registered buyer, no VAT needs to be paid upon purchase. However, a deposit corresponding to the VAT needs to be paid. The deposit sum varies between a minimum of SEK 6,000 and a maximum of 25% of the price of the car, depending on the car. For more information see our terms and conditions.

  • If the car is exported to another EU country and a company without a valid VAT number or a private individual is the registered buyer, VAT needs to be paid upon purchase. A deposit of SEK 6,000 also must be obtained.

  • If the car is exported to a country outside the EU and a company is the registered buyer, the buyer does not pay VAT on the car. However, a deposit corresponding to the VAT needs to be paid. The deposit sum varies between a minimum of SEK 6,000 and a maximum of 25% of the price of the car, depending on the car. For more information see our terms and conditions.

  • If the car is exported to a country outside the EU or to Åland and a private individual is the registered buyer, the buyer pays Swedish VAT on the car and also needs to pay a deposit. The deposit sum varies between a minimum of SEK 6,000 and a maximum of 25% of the price of the car, depending on the car. For more information see our terms and conditions.
