Thread: Change of ownership....to yourself ?!

    Change of ownership....to yourself ?!

    Lads,

    I recall this subject being raised on here previously but I cannot find the threads now that I want to read about it so.....
    If I send the logbook off for a change of ownership from my current name/address to my current name/address, will it reset the arrears ? It's a motorbike that I haven't really been using and never signed it off the road. (I know, I know......... !).

    Nope, registered name has to change afaik. Change it to a partner/relative or friend and then change it back again after.

    Nah. In the motortax office they may kick up a fuss, but not in Shannon.

    Sure .. it would not be uncommon, that John Mannion is selling his car to John Mannion jr.

    So .. yes .. it is no problem and it resets the tax liability, yes.

    Had to do it myself during the summer for something that had been off the road for years, but not declared off the road. No problem.

    /M

    On a trail somewhere .... not far from being stuck.

    As above, worked for me. All same details, just tick new ownership box. Presto.

    Worked for me also.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
