About Portnetic

The vehicle export market to the Republic of Ireland was at its peak in 2019, when almost 109,000 units were imported from Great Britain and Northern Ireland. In January 2021, post-Brexit, the importation of used vehicles into the Republic of Ireland became far more complicated and expensive.

Prior to Brexit, Irish car importers were not subject to paying VAT unless the unit was less than six months old, or unless the car mileage was more than  6,000km. Import duty also was not payable on Irish car imports pre-Brexit.

Brexit changed all this and the Portnetic team spotted an opportunity to provide a unique service.
