Moving vehicles to the Netherlands

When moving from a non-EU country to the Netherlands, you may be eligible for an exemption. In that case, it could be extremely interesting to move your own car, motorcycle, or other vehicle to the Netherlands. If you meet the conditions listed below, then you do not need to pay import duties, VAT, or BPM tax, which can save you a considerable amount of money.
