(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations relate to changes to vehicle registration procedures in the State in accordance with the provisions of Section 104 of the Finance Act 2010 , (which amended Section 131 of the Finance Act 1992 ) which allows the Revenue Commissioners to appoint a competent person(s) to carry out a range of functions on their behalf, relating to the registration of vehicles in the State.
Where an unregistered vehicle enters the State, in respect of which an application for permanent relief from the payment of vehicle registration tax will be made to the Revenue Commissioners (under the provisions of Section 134 of the Finance Act 1992 ), these Regulations make provision for a requirement that the person (in whose name the vehicle will be registered) shall make an application for permanent relief in respect of such vehicle not later than seven days following its arrival in the State.
