To be entitled to the tax free regime

Terms & Conditions of the Tax Free Regime

Any person, of any nationality (whether or not French), residing outside the European Union or in a French Overseas County or Territory, has the possibility of purchasing a new vehicle in mainland France exempt from taxes.

The advantages are as follows:

Temporary exemption from Value Added Tax (V.A.T.) applicable to certain goods used in mainland France, notably individual cars for tourism

Exemption from tax on "grey cards" (vehicle registration documents)

Formula:

In this context, Peugeot Open Europe, Citroën Euro Pass and Renault Eurodrive is a formula for selling a vehicle with a commitment to take back the vehicle which is particularly well suited for international clients wishing to drive during their stay in Europe for periods going from 17 days up to 6 months – Students, Trainees and Official Representatives please consult us.

"T" Registration

"T" stands for temporary transit. This is a special registration in a French series allowing temporary driving of new individual cars for tourism purchased in mainland France by persons staying occasionally in Mainland France and the European Union.
The registration number and the month and year indicating when this regime expires are reproduced in white characters on a red background on each registration plate.

The vehicle:

A vehicle registered like this is allowed to drive temporarily exempt from taxes. This T registration is intended solely for new vehicles for private tourist use, purchased in Mainland France. Consequently, neither utility vehicles; driving school vehicles nor ambulances may be covered by a Temporary Transit registration. Observation : It should be noted that Citroën, Peugeot and Renault offers in its range exclusively "left-hand drive" vehicles on a France/Europe basis.

The contract:

From a legal standpoint, a TT Contract is a VAT-free sale contract with deferred payment agreement.
The client must satisfy the criteria giving them entitlement to benefit from the VAT-free regime. They pay by credit card, and before delivery, a sum dependent on the length of time the car is to be used for. This price is not therefore dependent on the distance driven.
The difference between the sale price of the new car and the depreciation related to the use of this vehicle during the term of the contract constitutes the guarantee sum recorded on a promissory note which the client signs in favour of the maker

At the end of their contract, the client may:

Return their vehicle to the maker on the date and at the place stipulated in the contract. They are then no longer the holder.

Keep the vehicle definitively. In order to become the definitive owner, the client must contact the maker in order to pay the balance due
