Transferring your normal place of residence from an EU member state

When relocating from another EU country, you need not pay any import taxes and duties, nor observe any formalities concerning your personal property. However, before first registering your car in Austria, you must pay a tax based on the standard fuel consumption of vehicles at the competent tax office.

Please be aware that when first registering of a motor vehicle in Austria a standard consumption tax - the NOVA (Normverbrauchsabgabe) – is due, payable at the competent (local) tax office.
