Along with Germany, the Netherlands is one of the largest importers of classic cars due to the lower import taxes on cars over 30 years old. For classic cars you pay just 6% import duty, and 10% VAT. As of 2016, the import duty on cars under 30 years old is 10%, plus 10% VAT.
However if you are permanently moving to the Netherlands you are able to completely avoid paying the import duties on the car. Requirements are as follows: you must have lived outside of the EU for the past 12 months, and you must have purchased the car in the US, paid sales tax and driven the car for the past 6 months.
