5/Proof of Payment
It has come to both ours and revenues notice that some exporters in Japan are offering to write down Invoices to make taxes etc cheaper, they are essentially giving you two invoices .
Customs are now checking that the Invoice matches the Proof of payment submitted and if the car is amazingly good value will demand bank statements for the previous month to ensure all is in order.
When your car does arrive to Ireland bear in mind that it can take up to a week for the customs officials to clear your car due to the large volumes at present coming in.
We recommend you contact Celtic Shipping or other shipping agents well in advance about your impending arrival
