Re: Car Import from EU to Switzerland (less than 6months)

Bear in mind that if you've owned your car for less than 6 months when you immigrate, you not only have to pay duties because it does not qualify as a household moving item, but you also now (since July 1st 2012) have to pay the new CO2 tax if the car is less than 6m old, which is a function of weight and engine power.

You can compute the tax here: http://www.bfe.admin.ch/themen/00507...x.html?lang=fr

This post is somewhat confusing.

What matters regarding the CO2 tax is
a) the date of the first registration abroad
b) the date you import the car into Switzerland

If a) was more than 6 months before b) the car is considered a used car and is not subject to the CO2 tax. It does not matter for how long you have owned the car.
