Company cars – Austria

In Austria there is no legal distinction between company and private cars.

Vehicles with foreign number plates which are brought into the country or used there by persons whose primary residence or registered office is in Austria are considered as vehicles permanently located in Austria, until proof is provided to the contrary. The use of such vehicles, not registered in Austria, is permitted only for one month from when they are first brought into the country. After this period expires the registration document and the number plates must be handed in to the authority responsible for the area in which the vehicle is located.

The use on public roads of vehicles and trailers with foreign number plates, not permanently located in Austria, is only permitted if the vehicles were brought into the country no longer than one year before.
