Log in to use the Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA) service

Use the NOVA service to tell HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) you’ve brought a vehicle into the UK.

You can use the service if:

  • you’re a VAT-registered business that does not use the secure registration scheme
  • you’re not VAT-registered and you’ve imported a vehicle from the EU into Northern Ireland
  • you’re not VAT-registered and you’ve imported a vehicle from the EU using a delayed declaration
  • you’ve imported a vehicle that was purchased and made available within the EU and either arrived or began transiting to the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020

Online services may be slow during busy times. Check if there are any problems with this service.
