Importing Vehicles to Sri Lanka from UK

Hi, I am a Sri Lankan living in the UK with close connections to Sri Lanka and I would like to
know importing vehicles to SL.

particularly interested in exception when u transferred a lot of money to SL. any one with previous experience and complete guidance.. please let me know.

thanks

Hi,

To import vehicles you must have vehicle permits (for duty free vehicles) and import license. (What vehicle importers do is to buy vehicle permits from Ministers and Doctors to relieve Duty). If you dont have vehicle permit you must obtain import license. Once you paid the taxes and duty you can take the vehicle from the port.

Sending money is not an Issue. Fund receiver should give the Bank a letter stating source of the money also should mention this money will not go out of the country. If you are transfering big amount you can negotiate with the bank for a better exchange rate. If you are transferring money to NRFC no letter needed. Commercial Bank of Sri Lanka give better rates (based on my prior experience). Sending to a estate bank always is less risky.

Thanks,

Hi n8nt, did you work out how to save on the duty when importing used vehicles to sri lanka? I also heard about some tax concessions if you have sent lot of funds beforehand.
Would you please be able to share in knowledge on this?

thanks

I have heard about the Blue Permit to get tax concessions when importing vehicles- is this no longer in existence ?
