Company cars – United Kingdom

If you want to drive a company car registered in another EU country for more than 6 months in the United Kingdom, you can ask for an exemption from registration.

Your company has to apply for a P46 form from HMRC. HMRC will issue a customs relief form, which can be used to confirm the registration exemption as needed. In this case, you must have a contract that certifies your right to drive the car.
