From 15 April 2013, vehicles entering the country for permanent use on UK roads will have to be notified to HMRC within 14 days and any VAT due paid or ‘secured’. Until this is done it will not be possible to register or licence a vehicle with the DVLA/DVA.

A new online system called Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA) will support this change.
