Military and Diplomatic Tax Free Sales

You can buy a vehicle free of UK VAT if you are: 

  • a full time serving member of HM Forces or the Diplomatic Service posted overseas, and are taking the vehicle with you
  • a foreign national on posting to the UK as a member of the Visiting Forces or the Diplomatic Service 

Military Tax paid sales 

We also provide additional support to military personnel for tax paid sales.
You can apply to buy a Ford car with additional support if you are a full time serving member of HM Forces, based in the UK.

Non-military Tax Free Sales eligibility 

You can buy a vehicle free of UK VAT if you intend: 

  • to live outside the country for a period of time and are taking the vehicle with you
  • to export it permanently

Financing Your Vehicle

Ford Credit offers a 'Credit Sale' finance product that can be used for vehicles that are being exported from the UK  (for at least six months) by Forces personnel.  It provides legal title to the goods at the outset of the finance agreement.  As export vehicles are purchased for use outside of the UK, they are exempt from UK VAT.  However, a customer exporting one of these vehicles may remain liable to pay the local VAT upon arrival in another country. Please note – where VAT is not paid, proof of eligibility to support the zero-rating must be supplied to Ford Credit (e.g. export form 411).  Other hire purchase finance programmes may also be offered for Military personnel – ask your Ford Dealer for more details
