Re: How to PRIVATELY import a car EU to CH

You can keep your car on foreign plates for a year assuming your foreign insurer is OK with that. After a year sell your car back home or give it to a trader, or list on ricardo.ch from 1chf.

Re: How to PRIVATELY import a car EU to CH

Does anyone have any clarity on how long you have to wait until you can sell an imported car? Is it one year from when you get the documents stamped as you go through the border or is it when you first get your Swiss plates? I understand if you sell before the year is up you will have to pay some taxes.

Moved from Germany in March, should be Swiss plates this week. Need to buy a bigger car in Switzerland due to an expanding family.
